Hi Brandon. I too am a vegan welder, and have had to 'work around' the lea ther glove issue. I learned to weld with stick, and earned my 3G certifica tion using a Kevlar fingered foundry glove. On my hand close to the splatt er, I now use a reflective shield which helps a ton. The glove is not very dexterous, but for stick welding it was not a big issue. For MIG welding I use an inexpensive heavy cotton glove with cuffs which works fine (again the shield may be useful). For TIG I did something weird, but it worked fi ne. I took a thin cotton glove sold at drugstores for folks with skin cond itions on my right hand and pulled over that a cotton glove with cuffs that I had cut the tip off to make the outer glove fingerless. This gave me 'f eel' and it worked fine. Hope this helps.
