I was wondering what kind of gloves you guys wear when working?  The ones I see in pics and videos look like regular plain white cotton gloves, is that right?  I was looking for a microfiber glove that wouldn’t leave any fibers behind, but I couldn’t find any for any reasonable price.  Is there anything wrong with nitrile besides not breathing at all?  I use those all the time at work, and I think they’d work fine, unless I’m missing some aspect.

Cotten gloves when handling the cases when polishing etc. When assembling a watch I use finger cots on a couple of fingers of one hand. For clock assembly I use powerless nitrile gloves.

Marigolds........  :D

 

Actually being the skinflit that I am I buy the powder free vinyl or nitrile examination gloves and cut the fingers off to use as cots. I find that the full glove is too sweaty, but proper finger cots seem to be a silly price.  This way I get 500 cots for about £4, or £1.50 if I find gloves at a car boot.

I do the same ! I find finger cots to tight and shut off the blood supply, so buy powder less rubber gloves and cut the fingers off.

I only ever wore thick gloves when working with large powerful clock mainsprings. Never used any thing for watch work. 

I like OH’s response. Can’t find comfortable finger cots.

So do you have an Amazon link for large finger cots or a link for gloves that I could turn into finger cots?

Buy which ever size gives you the most useful range of finger cot sizes.

Thanks Mark. Too much finger into lighter fluid action lately. But really my guitar playing doing the most temp damage. Relearning the lead break for stairway to heaven...know the rest of the song.ebd0fa1a42a94b103ec2689034d93995.jpg
