  • You can fix about anything with the right toys!!!

    All you need is a bandsaw, bender, welder and metal lathe and some scrap steel and you can fix about anything. My fav snow shovel broke the handle and i didn't want to drive across town to get another one. I would rather spend a little time in the shop than shoveling snow ...Bob

            When you're welding something really hot, can you feel the glove shrink up on your fingers?? usually accompanied by the smell of burning leather...

              you don't wear a small do you? i'm left handed and i burn thru the right glove all the time. i tell my friend at praxair to find me someone who wears out the lefts and we'll swap extra gloves.
              when i run out of new gloves, i start wearing a left on the right hand (takes just a little while to get it to conform to my hand), or i cut fingers off other gloves and slip them over the burned ones. gets me thru a few more days!

                YES and its amazing how long it takes your finger to feel the same effect, then your shaking the glove like **** trying to get it off - lol

                  Nope xtra large. My buddy was left handed and when we got new gloves at work i would take the left and he took the right one. Saved the boss a few bucks...Bob

                    actually I think they might be a small. I like the tight fit and dexterity i can get from doing so. Mind you if they were large gloves, theyve shrunk so much form the heat that m sure they are smalls by now!

                    I think that they are small... thinking about a swap?

                        Nope. They usualy give you about 2 weeks (depending on what you do with them) protection from surious injuries and then it's time for a new pair. If you wish to find out just what they do for you then take them off for a minute or two while welding.
