Title: One simple trick. Welding Gloves
Post by: Tuco on September 19, 2022, 06:27:39 PM
An absolute must for hot heavy cast iron, and darn handy for pulling a casserole out of the oven.  Next time you're at harbor freight, or passing the welding supply shop, grab a pair of leather welding gloves.

You'll never go back to the gimp mittens and the doilies can be on the table where they belong, under hot dishes.

I've pulled pans from a 500 degree oven without any felt transfer of heat at all.

I have several pair that don't get used for welding. Absolutely essential for camping, and next to the fireplace, and for handling semi-feral barn cats.

We used to have a glove factory here that later became a warehouse and shipping hub for all sorts of industrial type gloves. Once every year they had a huge lot sale of seconds, samples, over runs, etc and they sold them real cheap or by the bundle or bag. I bought a tote full several years. They were mergered out of local existance but I might never have to buy gloves again.

If you have a wood stove or wood fireplace, you definitely need a set of good heavy welding gloves.
 
Log rolls out? Don't panic. Just put the gloves on, pick it up, and put it back. Easy.
 
Damn, that was about 40 years ago...

They are also good for falconry.
