and I keep my heavy old one's for extra hot pieces, also use heavy gloves when I use a belt sander or heavy grinding, in fact I have no short gloves at all! I have nice thin cowhide ones, one's that are mix of rough leath with thin cow hide, regular rough ones and heavy insulated one's, rubberized ones for outdoors, when its raining or damp, constant over heat to your hands may lead to problems down the road your cooking them slowly, if my gloves too hot I toss them off, I recall a guy who was welding 30" pipe adapters on a rotator with .045 flux core and he could feel the heat running into the back of his wrist through his glove and grinned and bared it, untill the weld was complete, when he took his glove off, his watched had melted into his skin Ouch! If I doing this type of work, I 'll place anothor old glove to the area that is going to get heated and keep the back of the glove off my skin this lessens the heat transfer by using the air in the glove as a medium
