Default Wear Gloves?

I remember reading a post just a few days ago about gloves, lost finger prints....etc. etc.

Well in my excitement today of starting the dome... I forgot the gloves.

Yikes ! Skin loss = a valuable lesson.

So if you play with the high heat mortar.

Lime,
Cement,
Sand,
Clay

Use gloves!!


Cuz these are my fingers today!

Gosh I feel like an idiot!

I did a lot of work without gloves, because ordinary gloves are so cumbersome or flimsy, until I discovered these:



They fit tight, they are waterproof without being sweaty, The rubber is textured so you can pick up anything, they are washable, and I wouldn't touch anything corrosive without them again.

I will have to find a pair of those!

Thanks

The ATLAS are all I use for block and stone as well as general purpose. For brick I use these: Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices
they are a closer fit for handling brick and wear much better than surgical gloves, much, much better. The only draw back is that they do make your hands sweat but I can live with that trade off. I use them for brick because I can feel more than the Atlas. As a EXCELLENT general purpose glove the Atlas as they say theses days "are the $hit" or is it $hits? got t check with my teenager.
Actually I was at Wall Mart the other day and got a pair of "fishing gloves" in the fishing isle for a buck and some change that are actually a good substitute for the Atlas for light duty I was very impressed. I switched to the atlas several years ago because they will actually out last a pair of leather gloves and I have tried MOST of them from cheap to expensive.

Personally, I hate concrete burns. They are just the worst -- much slower to heal than a cut or blister. It's a real burn. Hurts like heck.

Dave, does that sound right? :-(

I wear the nitrile gloves underneath a pair of old leather work gloves.

A while back, someone mentioned rubbing the hands with vinegar after working with mortar. It helped quite a bit! Lately, I try to keep the mortar on the trowel and off of my hands, and that works too. (sometimes.)
