Wimps.... (bg)

I have never used gloves, can't stand my hands sweating. I do hate to have to wash before using the bathroom, but I have never had the staining problem.

We have one tech thats a constant user and another that uses them sometimes out of ten techs.

Hey guys -- be careful!
I didn't see anyone else warning you, so I felt I should do it. Some significant percentage of the human population (not sure if it's 3% or 5%) can develop an allergy to latex! It can be as mild as a reddening of the skin, or a maybe even a rash. On the other hand, such allergies can develop more serious reactions with continued exposure -- including "systemic" reactions -- including closure of the airways (ever hear of anaphylactic shock?).
I'd advise all to select some other material for their gloves, or at least be aware of and watch for signs of allergic reaction.

Kind of curious, did anybody try the "Mechanix" gloves mentioned earlier?

Been using them for 2 months and they work really well.

Clean off the parts before you touch them, wash you hands and then come back the next day then no one needs gloves. Has any one ever seen the factory shop at Ferrari in Italy. You can eat off the floors. I guess those engines never get dirty LOL
