White inspection gloves, where to buy locally

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I would like to get some cheap white cotton gloves (inspection) for handling watches (& clocks) locally. I’ve searched with no luck. What KIND of store would i find these?

Can do online. But would like to try on and see Quality first.

thanks

Ok. I have googled white cotton gloves and found  Amazon and ebay sell them. If you have auction houses or shops that sell silver or antique shops you could ask them.

In the UK:-
1. Some chemist or pharmacist stock cotton gloves. Wife buys hers in the chain Boots.
2. Some home storage companies do. Have bought some prior to dismantling the family grand father clock.

Hope this helps you out.

Be careful what you buy 90 % of what they are selling on Ebay and Amazon are from china and are absolute rubbish I bought some they where so misshaped they would not fit correctly and so thin to be of no use, many sellers are selling medical use cotton gloves as butlers gloves they are for people who require the use of creams for skin disorders .

If you buy any look for Eddingtons white cotton butlers gloves they are very good, I use them for handling clock parts after I have cleaned them to avoid marking, they are up to the job and should last a long time. Some larger Tesco's stock them or use the Eddingtons web site to find your nearest stockist.

Haha I've got these too, they are made for some alien race with a non-oppositional thumb. But others from the dollar store are OK.

    • Alternatively you could use tinned copper wire.It solders very easily.
    • Pierre Chevelle. gran sport 150. My father got it for me about 50 years ago.A cigar smoker ,he got it in exchange for cigar bands from the Phillies he smoked.Still have it. I just installed a new crystal.It awaits a clean lube and adjust.
    • Dear all, I recently had the pleasure of finding a damaged hairspring needing care. My first! It’s an inexpensive orient watch, gaining 20 minutes a day. I am taking Mark’s fault finding course, and have other inexpensive hairsprings to practise with. I also got some vintage tools I’d love to use. Until now for me levellers were only the Oliver Cromwell people, but ebay never ceases to surprise... I could pass the first stages of correcting the coil, with two tweezers. But could not find a use for the vintage tools. Could you help me to figure it out?  Picture 1 is the bent hairspring  picture 2 and 3 the box of tas levellers picture 4 is the hairspring suffering under my tweezers now picture 5 shows the tip of the tools picture 6: from De Carle. Would this be the purpose of the levellers? The overcoil? 
    • my first running watch was an Wyler squire.  i wore the case out,  the mvt. would fall out at work.  i still have it and another with a similar case.   vin
    • First watch was a Kered    from Shepherds of the shambles in York, alas no longer in business. The plus side is I still have the watch it was a 21st birthday pressie, and even better it still ticks  54 years later although the dial has a water mark ,    I even wore it playing cricket for 12 years.
