Lawg Dawg,

   I find not using gloves just tenderizes my hands so skip the toughening process. ;) I use cheap HF gloves as I find they tear up just as fast as the $15-$20 White or Brown mule or other high cost brands. I was moving some 8/4 LE slabs the other day and smashed one down on a bed rail. Boy did it hurt. Then I got to thinking how much more it would have been hurting without the glove on that hand. :o

I do not saw without gloves.  Ditto; steel toe boots, dust mask, eye & ear protection, hat, and my ever present leather waist apron.

I must have the same quirk as Magicman.   I went to get a pair of gloves out of the truck while sawing in the U.P.  and only found right handed gloves. probably 4 or 5, and not a one left to go with them.

Today I was organizing stuff in the garage and decided to go through a bag full of old gloves. It was a delightful mixture of fungus, mildew and mold. 

I had 7 right hand gloves with no mate.
And 1 left hand glove with no mate.

What is going on?  I am right handed.  I think I probably take off the right hand glove when working much more than the left hand glove.  Does this mean I wear out the left ones first?  

Maybe we can hear from some lefties about their glove inventory.
And is this reversed for you folks "down under" ?

I think it is time to start a poll.

OK, I flipped a right and made a wrong.


 
Of course that now means that the right is smooth and the left is swede and probably will wear out quicker and I will still have more rights than lefts. ;D

No glove wears correctly anyway until it has been wet and dries to fit.

Maybe it's time for a FF glove exchange.  Swipe right if yer lookin' for rights, swipe left if yer lookin' for lefts.  Jeff could be the matchmaker. :D

Seems like a lot of Lefties on here (me included).  Maybe it's time for a poll for sawyers - lefty or righty.  Who knows maybe more lefty sawyers than righties.  10% of the population is supposedly left handed.

I'm a lefty, but I generally wear out the right handed gloves faster.
When fencing my pliers are in my left hand, I generally swing a hammer lefty, hold a torch or welder lefty. Basically, my right hand gets the abusive jobs.
FYI, I eat with both hands, but only wear gloves when it's my own cooking! ;D ;D

You don't want me to do that.:)

Several years ago, Steve Beecraft (Burlkraft) came over and went out deer hunting with me in the U.P. On our way out of the woods that morning, He said! Hey look, you must have dropped your jersey gloves under that tree, and started over towards them.  I let him get almost there, and said UMMM...  I wouldn't pick them up if I were you...:D   That year for Christmas he sent me a box full of new pairs of brown jersey gloves.  Funny thing was, we both became acutely adept at spotting stray gloves laying in places they should not be, and several times we would call each other just to say we had spotted a glove.:D

I don't get it either, Why shouldn't he have picked up the gloves?  If it was deer season, it couldn't have been a snake...
