Nitrile gloves

So I have been pretty happy with using gloves for the first time while working on a vehicle. I silently snickered at any man who had them in their tool kit, but I have to say its pretty nice. I like that that grease and grime actually wipes off the gloves pretty well so you aren't always changing them. And the harbor freight ones hold up pretty well to most any job or task. Only thing I don't like is the existing wounds on the hands that the gloves seem to provide the perfect incubator conditions for nasties. I imagine if your hands aren't already cut up it's a null issue lol.

On a side note. Do you need to buy a whole new brake pedal box if you want the bigger auto brake pedal? Previous owner left in the slave cylinder, unbolted btw so it made a terrible noise on the dirt roads. And while taking the brake box off to get the slave cylinder out I thought now might be a good time to get the proper brake pedal.

Yea they were the 5 mil. Brake fluid, brake clean, nothing got through them. Pretty impressed. I will for sure be putting a few pairs in all the cars for those unexpected flat changes. Pretty impressed.

I've been putting off the glove thing for awhile too, but was thinking may give them a shot.

There's nothing to snicker at. Absorbing chemicals through your skin doesn't make you cool, unless it's LSD and you're in the 1960's

I try to use gloves most of the time. The blue ones seem better. I use the mechanix gloves alot too.

Yea that's kind of what got me thinking. Hard to tell these days though, I know lots of retired mechanics and they are all cancer free, but then some people get it for no reason. But either way who knows what kind of birth defects and other ailments that chit gives you. We've even gone organic! Tastes good though.

I use them all the time. Partly because I don't like absorbing chemical and ground-in grime, but also so that I can have clean hands in an instant when I need to assemble clean parts, work around the paint, touch the steering wheel etc. i dont worry about conserving them and can go through five or more sets per day if Im working for awhile. Some are better than others and the difference is worth the few extra bucks per box.

I'm sort of laughing because it was you that once told me to taste a leak to see if it was coolant or brake fluid.

I use them to do some gross dishes sometimes, too. Especially after using a crock pot. Use them when cutting vegetables then chicken (or vice versa) so that I'm not constantly washing my hands. May sound odd, but it's worked for me. I have a box of them in my garage, a box in my truck, and a box in my kitchen cabinet.

When re-packing bearings they're pretty much a must; the grease slides right off of them, plus it's not sticking on your hands.

While I rarely visit the Home Depot store, I was in there a couple weeks go and picked up a sample pack of the black "Grease Monkey" brand gloves. I click on the like button on the D-90 Forum.

Yea I was super happy with that. I just redid all the fronts and it was a pleasant task using the gloves. Its also neat not seeing your fingerprints for a week after working on the truck.

That's a good idea on the kitchen, I hate having to wash constantly as well.

I started playing guitar again about a year ago and that's when I got serious about keepin my hands grease free. Plus now that I'm using gloves when wrenching all the door knobs in the house are much cleaner too!

Now if they could make shoe covers so I stop tracking in 90wt and metal shavings. I could always try listening to swmbo and take off my dang shoes when I come in!

I usually only use gloves when packing wheel bearings, or when I have to touch customers tires that have been covered in homie shine.
