    Default First Pair Tig Gloves? Help plz

    I'll be starting my training in GTAW on Tuesday at school. I would like the recomendations from experinced welders such as yourselves as too what to buy. I've been using miller mig/stick gloves for stick and mig so far in class, and i'm pleased with them. But i'm considering tillman or miller for tig. Also what should i be looking at in a tig glove. Thank you in advance guys.

    Fit and feel. If you can pick up dimes off a glass counter, they are good enough. You should already know not to grab hot metal, this hardens leather and diminishes feel.

    Tillman's since they're pretty soft, but they have a tendency to rip at the thumb to palm joint/split.

    I've always like Tillman gloves, any of their "premium" gloves. I get them tight for feel, as others have mentioned.

    Do people ask you about your suntanned finger tips?
