      you must have better ones than I can find, you get up in a cow, either preg checking which you go in the top opening to feel for the calf in the uterus, or if your trying to help a cow calf, you go in the bottom opening and when you get in up to your arm pit it seems like all the glove is up around your arm, and about then she pushes and smashes your fingers against some solid part of the calf, as your trying to get the feet rearranged, or what ever, and if you ever find your self in this situation remove your rings and watch, you can lose them in there,

      the gloves help some, in that situation but I would bet they would help more in drain cleaning as you usually are not trying to force you hand in against some trying to escape,

      I have used them in working on the tank floats in water that is 32, degrees, and they help a lot in ice water, dry cold is much better than wet cold.

      tho really the vet gloves are a good tip,

        I wear latex gloves,

        Coveralls,

        Rubber boots,

        I have not found a pair of safety glasses,that works with my eyeglasses.still looking.

        Still wonder why people like to expose theirselves in public,often under conditions such as Lenny posted.But since people do so,it's BIG BUSINESS all the way.

          Just curious. Have you looked into prescription safety glasses? On some other forums people have gotten ones that even fit into a respirator.

          My regular glasses slip under safety glasses. They are kind of small, because my prescription is so bad, that even with the highest index lenses, they are more 1/4" thick in small frames, in big frames they would be like 1/2" thick. I have thought about getting prescription ones to act as a spare, and also so I don't need to wear my $500 regular glasses while doing stuff. Also, when my daughter (18 months old) hid my glasses over the weekend, it was very sucky being blind for 30 minutes while looking for them.

              Started wearing latex gloves in 1988. Was made fun of, people were calling me a surgeon, doctor wannabe. Wore the white ones and had to go to medical supply stores to buy them.

              They broke easy and the powder inside them I'm highly allergic to. Been wearing gloves constantly from that time, except I now wear nitrile hi-hazard gloves that are blue, thick and hold up great.


              I cringe when I see pictures of plumbing work on these sites with plumbers bare-handing anything related to plumbing.

              It doesn't matter if I'm rebuilding a faucet; those gloves are on and they protect me from repeated exposures of the nasty, keep the germs out of the cuts/burns/scrapes and slows down the transfer of bad stuff to anything outside of my work life.

              Some plumbers state they can't get used to it, I say if you have a family, you got no excuse; get the damn gloves on and protect your loved ones. Don't be selfish and deal with the discomfort till you can't work without them.


              We deal with some horrific stuff, our immune systems are built to fight it, but the innocent people we're around, are not.

                    There is a carpet cleaner around here that puts on a tyveck suit, googles and a resperator when he is vacuuming a little sewage up. It might be over board but I think it has great effect on the customer.

                    I'd like to do it for effect but dang that stuff is hot!!!

                      Poo on my hands? Heck I've got poo all over me, or at least bacteria. I don't think that it's possible to keep myself or my van CLEAN. I might appear clean, I keep myself and my equipment free of anything that will leave a mark, but I'm sure the bacteria is just everywhere. I concentrate on making sure not to touch my face, and making sure to wash my hands as much as possible, and always before eating.

                      I wear gloves, but more for abrasion/injury prevention than cleanliness.

                      I'll take poo over grease trap waste any day.
                      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

                        Some years ago one of the wives figured out why the gay men are hot for the plumbers.
                        Poo is the smell of hot sex!

                            I go through two boxes a month. And that is just for me! I wear my latex gloves for everything drain related. I may come home with my clothes stinking, but my hand don't stink!

                              Yeah it's impossible to be 80% clean, much less 100%. Many times I've undressed by my washing machine to put my clothes right in, but I don't want to invite problems by not protecting my hands.

                              I knew a plumber who would eat lunch without cleaning his hands.

                              The first time I saw him eating a sandwich with dirty hands, I asked if he ever got sick from doing that.

                              He said "What? My hands are dry, I'll be fine."

                              To each his own, I guess.
