Excellent Spatter Shield
January 31, 2013
I have been doing light MIG as a SheetMetal Worker in Chicago for years. I'm right handed and have burned my arms, legs and destroyed the left sleeve of two regular "green" jackets. I saw the accessories tab while looking for a new pair of gloves here on cyberweld and noticed these shields. Thats cool, I thought and added it to my order.
This is a great little thing to save your new gloves. The spatter bounces right off the pad and the shiny surface gives you just a shade more light from your arc to see what you are doing in tight dark spots..
ProsNot tight over your palm/wrist.
Doesn't get in your way for an off-hand weld.
Can't feel any heat through the pad at all, even leaning on hot spots.
ConsPalm strap could be made from heavier material as I can see it will break/wear-out from handling sharp edges and corners.
But, they're cheap, buy two.... It'll just sit in your bag until you need it...
