I have an old pair of bicycling gloves that I use.  Just  use it on my left hand.  It helps cuts down on the chips hitting the heel of my hand and also helps when some of those chips get pretty hot.

I'll bet that even though you have to wear the gloves with the razor knife that both the gloves and the razor knife cause cancer ... in CA.


That reminds me of one of the little stores I go to. The clerk will ask me if I want a receipt for my purchase. I tell them I do not want one because that, "Kills a forest in Ca."

Well thanks, we have enough dead trees already

"The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service Monday announced that an additional 27 million trees, mostly conifers, died throughout California since November 2016, bringing the total number of trees that have died due to drought and bark beetles to an historic 129 million on 8.9 million acres. The dead trees continue to pose a hazard to people and critical infrastructure, mostly centered in the central and southern Sierra Nevada region of the state."

I used to buy the leather gloves at Costco.....3 pr. for about $20.  Then I would cut the top half of the fingers off.  I would turn the right hand gloves inside out as I only wear a turning glove on my left hand.  6 gloves would last a long time.  Now, I just buy the Harbor Freight fingerless gloves.  Have not worked out what to do with the right hand glove yet.

The only time I use gloves is when I am using a tool since some chips are really hot and sometimes the chips are just sharp.  Other then that I do not use them.

I do keep the fingers on them tho and just blow the stuff out of them when I am done.  Just like I clean my tools and make sure all of them are sharpened before I leave for the day.

Did I ever tell you I am a clean freak.  lol  To long in the military I guess.
