Great high heat glove
September 26, 2013
I used to keep a box of welding gloves on hand for the big jobs. I'd have to change gloves several times during an operation just to keep my hands cool - let alone the hardening and cracking of the glove. With the heat pads, these bad boys last a long time, even when burning 1/4 inch rod. Just remember, as with any welding glove, they are meant to protect from radiant heat and accidental contact, not continued contact with hot items!
With the pad, they are quite a bit stiffer than ordinary welding gloves, so I like to have a variety in the shop. Everything from the supple TIG gloves to these mitts here.
