  • Need some opinions on gloves

    I have been using Tillman 850's which I love, but I've only had this pair for about 2 months and I blew holes in the fingertips. What would you recommend? My limit is like $20 for a pair.

    If they still made them the white Miller gloves were awesome I thought! But the new ones are pretty good too!

        2 months on a pair of gloves!!!! Must be nice as i get 5 days esp on the left hand. The right one lasts for a few weeks. My choice of gloves $2.49 cent from my local hardware store. I can't stand a heavy pair where i can't feel my fingers or the parts i work with...Bob

          I use tillman 750 elk skins .. But they are heavy for tig welding . When I tig I just grab a pair of leather driver gloves

            What about the Tillman Onyx series? Are they any tougher or are they just dyed black?
