    Then I'd say that "what you see" has very little real world relation to the professional welding world. What the goofy, stupid hacks "you see all the time" do really doesn't have much bearing, even in "new welder but I don't like burning my digits off" land.

    That's about as stupid as saying "most" professional car painters turn the gun full tilt on their face after spraying the car.

    Get a grip. "yup" as you say.

      Rather than battling each other...

      my question would be... have you spoken to anybody at Miller about this??

      would think they would want to be made aware of a potential defective product situation and address or correct it...

      just my 2cents worth..

        In a place where none of us speak the language but where our overlords make tons of money by importing garbage.

        Men and women out of work in this country by the millions and we still allow importation of utter junk on which to waste the little money that does manage to trickle down on our unprotected heads. Is there something wrong in this picture? I'll tell you how to improve welding gloves and a million other products in this country. Charge a tax of $1,000 per ton on every single thing imported across our borders. If that doesn't halt the tide of rubbish that we wade hip-deep in at least it will pay off the national debt, and put Wal Mart out of business - another step in the right direction.

          Why would I waste my time telling Miller something they should already have known and figured out? At this point I've already wasted my time and money when it comes to these gloves. Spending more of my time doing the quality assurance for Miller (quality assurance that they should have already done) so they can continue to make money on a sub standard product isn't something I am going to do. I'll do my part in informing them by walking away and spending my money on gloves that aren't sub standard. Anyway they probably have some one that reviews these forum posts and they'll figure it out that way. If they don't, well, they figure it out when the sale of these gloves takes a nose dive.

            For any of you who experience performance issues with our Arc Armor® gloves, or any Miller product, you should first contact the Distributor location where you purchased the product, or call our Service line on 866-931-9731.

            We produce a high number of welding gloves, and while a certain percentage of manufacturer defects are inevitable, our overall defect rates are low. We did not discontinue the gloves due to any quality issue. We enhanced our offering of safety apparel as part of our commitment to continuously improving product styles and designs.

            For any other questions or concerns, please contact us at forum@millerwelds.com or the Service line above.

              Well as far as I am concerned the "over all defect rate" with those particular gloves ISN'T low. It's 100%, I bought two pair and each had the lining rip out really fast and it wasn't because of me. Those particular gloves are the worst stick welding gloves I ever had. I won't be buying anymore no matter what the "over all defect rate" is.
