Through September 5th, Craftsman mechanics gloves are on sale at Sears for $9.88 a pair.  For less than $10, you get comfortable gloves which can handle a moderate amount of abuse.

I picked up a pair a while ago, and they’ve endured everything from picking up broken glass shards to moving a cummulative two thousand pounds up three flights of stairs. In addition to an extra protective layer on the thumb and forefinger, they feature finger grips which help reduce the fumbling associated with picking up small parts.  They’re also quite comfortable even if worn for an extended period of time.

On a more personal note, although I thought it was just a marketing ploy, the extra protection on the thumb and forefinger really came in handy when I decided to use these instead of a pair of bulky leather gloves.  During work on a high-temperature item, it wasn’t until I removed the gloves that I realized I had melted off the fingertip grips and part of the extra protection layer.  Yikes!

    I wear these for just about everything EXCEPT for handling hot parts. The synthetic material is very durable, but will MELT and stick to skin.

    These things ROCK. I use them *everywhere* except when welding or handling tires. I have half a dozen pairs. I usually keep three pairs in rotation in the garage (clean, topside work, filthy bottomside work). I have a pair in each car’s glovebox.

  3. I have a pair that I had misplaced and finally found this weekend. It might be time to pick up another couple of pairs.

    Yeah, but how do they work inside out?

  5. I have yet to find a pair of glove that will last longer than one good afternoon working on my truck. I have a number of these gloves that have holes in the same place, the forefinger and thumb. I’ve giving up on these types of glove disposable gloves are cheaper.
