View Full Version : dirty sleeve problem

02-24-2005, 06:36 PM
I work with my sleeves rolled to my elbows. At the end of even a clean day my shirt sleeves are grimmy. I seen a sleeve that could be pulled on over your shirt sleeves and it had elastic at the rist and the elbow. I think it was a throw away. I have seen them in old photos of printers laying up pages for newspapers and also on telegraph operators of the old west days. Are these still available today?

Shops that do fiberglas work also use such an item, I would seek out a fiberglas supply shop.

Yes, fiberglass supply house. I've used them while doing composite tooling layups. The sleves are made of Tyvek.

Do yours have brass buttons like those on the sleeves of midshipmen?

I thought you may be having trouble with a Willys Knight, Daimler or Minerva or maybe taking a Sabre out of storage, cleaning up a Barr & Stroud...but no

Cut me teeth on a Morris 8, an SilentLE Velo and an Ariel. Had a SV Minor with only 178000 on the clock and a 997 Cooper overbored plus 60. I thought Barr and Strouds were for those with black buttons.

Arse to the Maast and who's turn is it in the barrel this week.

Gibe Ho!

Frightfully sorry, old chap.

Using the English from the days of the Mayflower.

Might I add there are two P's in "supply"- but only one in "Bath"

ENCO has flame retardent sleeves and KEVLAR sleeves on page 817 in the 2005 master catalog. They are not expensive. I bought two pairs of cotton sleeves from them several years ago and have yet to wear out the first set.

Hi-a Iowa-hf!

Yes to both!

I go back to the Norman Conquest.

I remember Francis Drake circumcising the world with a 40 foot cutter- or something like that.

Am enjoying someone taking the Mickey.

Kevlar sleeves rule.. You can still be "poked and stuck" but near cut resistant. The kevlar gloves with the dots on them? grab your own wrist and tighten, they do not slip. Just wiping a runny nose will bring tears to your eyes.

Long sleeves may not be safe in the machine shop envirnment. That goes for gloves too.

If they catch, they can pull your butt right into the machine.

A machinist of around 40 years old was pulled into a machine in the Baltimore area
a couple months ago.

He's gone to another world now.

If you want nice hands, there is always soap and a brush, or take up bowling.

Lab safety supply companies have a number of types of sleeves of this type. Try Cole-Palmer or Van Waters and Roger (VWR) supply. Some of them are washable and some are disposable. Good luck to you!

Sorry to only have information to share and not some childish bull**** as seen above.

Geeze guys, what a racket over sleeves. Now I see how a war gets started. I'm sort of terrified to ask any more questions less the next war is started over something like which side do you use your toilet paper on? Keep it up, I love it and thanks for the help.

Just my input with Childish bull****.

I hope you take it well, LOL
