Obviously fingerless gloves offer no finger protecting, so sticking your hand to a engine warmed up to normal operating temperature is a pretty bonehead move. But being Toolmongers we did it anyway. We found that even if you’re not touching hot metal directly with your bare finger, about six seconds is all you get wearing these gloves — and a lot less if your finger happens to brush up against steel. In short; don’t use these gloves on a hot engine.
As you might imagine, these gloves performed superbly in our dexterity test. We could pick up both our 7/8” and 1/2″ washers with no problems, but we could also pick them up at the same time. That places these gloves — not surprisingly — at the top of our test in terms of dexterity. Unless “butterfingers” is your nickname, picking things up with these gloves isn’t ever going to be an issue.
