  • gloves

    just looking for some feedback on what type of gloves are preferred. I currently use the pair that came with my k-60 kit, which has steel imbedded in the glove, but I need to get replacements

      Re: gloves

      never liked the steel mitts.

      i buy the cheep leather gloves $1.00-1.50 a pair. get a handful of uses then shred them. i wear nitrile liners under them.

      lately i've been wearing the thicker, longer cuff welding gloves and having good results.

      i tend to wear out the left cable glove and not wear out the right.

      anyone want to swap right for left gloves

        GLOVES ! GLOVES ? ? ?

        WHO USES GLOVES ?

        BUT REALLY I ALSO PREFER THE WELDER GLOVES WHEN

        I CAN GET THEM THEY ARE VERY GOOD FOR RUNNING

        11/16" AND 3/4" CABLES THEY KEEP THE CABLE SLAP

        AWAY FROM YOUR WRISTS

        BUT I USUALLY JUST USE COMMON WORK GLOVES

        EXCEPT ON 1/4" AND 5/16" CABLE I NEED TO FEEL THE

          I use grappler cloves from drain cablesdirect. Here is a link to their page.
          http://www.draincables.com/ProductDe...ductCode=GL104

          They cost more than normal gloves but last along time and hold up well.
          the chepo gloves for $2 two or $3 bucks will cost more in the long run.
          Two pair have lasted over a year. Where with chepo gloves would have used 20 -30 pairs

          Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

            Re: gloves

            I don't have the glove situation dialed in yet. The cheapo leather I can get in xxxl from Grainger so its easy to put on with nitrile gloves but I've had them get caught in the open wound cable twice now. No injury but just a matter of time. Tried the metal embedded mitt that came with the k-60 and I kinda like it, not perfect but not getting wound up in a cable puts me at ease. I need to try the welding gloves. Can buy the left handed mitt only thats a plus.

              Best pair I ever used someone bought for me at a gas station as joke. They lasted about a year with constant use on my 300.I couldn't find them after that. If I do find em I'll be sure to buy a box and share the make with u guys.

                Re: gloves

                latex examination gloves on first then the leather work gloves in the 3/$10 or 4/$10 packaging. they tend to get too nasty before they get worn out. grease is the ultimate death. i keep a pair in the 7/8 cable stuff buckry and a pair in the 5/8 cable stuff bucket and a spare pair lying loose in case one of the others gets saturated.

                i may get a couple of months if i'm lucky. just part of the cost of doing business

                  latex gloves inside ugly gloves work for me...

                      latex gloves inside ugly gloves work for me..

                      That is what I all ways use as well. I have got them caught in the cable once making me twirl and the other just pinching my finger pretty good. I found out it's better to wear them tight as possible for a better feel and to prevent them from getting caught in the cable.

                        Dan try these grappler golves from draincables direct. I have used Ugly gloves rubber gloves and leather gloves. These work the best and won't get cought in the cables and last a long time.

                          Re: gloves

                          i tried the yellow ugly gloves for the k-60, but the cable speed is too fast and the gloves heat up too much.

                          i've gone through many cases of the yellow gloves with the 7500.

                          i introduced j.m. mckinney to the yellow gloves and hate to think how many thousands they've sold over the years

                              I use the cheap leather palm gloves also.
                              welding gloves only on root infested lines.
                              Does any one else wash there leather palm gloves? or is this just me being cheap?
