    when you say "ugly gloves", do you mean the ones with the metal lining on the palm?

      The ugly gloves I know of are heavy rubber with a pvc chip coating on the palm. These work great for handling the cable, I've had more trouble with leather gloves espicially with sectional cables.
      Buy cheap, buy twice.

        interesting ben.

        the ugly gloves i found wear too fast with the hi speed sectional cables.
        i prefer the leather gloves with a pair of nytril gloves under them.

        drums were fine with the ugly gloves, sectional i like leather.

        plus, the leather gloves can be found for $1.00 every now and then.

        i don't care for the leather stapled mitts.

          I used to use the welders gloves and lather them up with a bit of grease from my grease gun and let them sit a bit and then I would have some good gloves. I would also put "nytril gloves" under these or what ever I was buying at the time.

            Double layered reinforced stitching is plus. The cheaper gloves always seem to tear between the thumb an index finger.

            Those ugly gloves are good for pulling a greasy jetter hose but thats about it IMO.

                I've always felt Ugly Gloves were like ugly women. When you lose a pretty one you're heart is broken but who cares when you lose an ugly one.

                  Any response to that other than this one will most likely get me in trouble one way or another...

                    I use the ugly gloves for jetting. Steel riveted gloves for rodding.

                    The first time I let Chris rod a drain I told him to never forget to put on the leathers over the nitrle gloves.

                    I watched as he forgot and had them ripped off in 2 seconds. It scared the crap out of him.

                    He won't forget again.

                    Don't worry, he was only running the Model 100. I would not have let it go with the big machine.

                    I don't really care for the riveted type either but I have several pairs laying around so I will wear them out. Once done with those i will start using leather gloves with the doubled up leather palms for rodding.
