    True that, there is no one size fits all. I use the normal gloves from the welding supply for MIG and stick, and a pair of leather driving gloves for TIG if I wear any gloves at all. I save the nomex lined ones for really hot-n-heavy action like arc gouging and heavy stick work. Back in the 1990's I was going through a case of 7018 a week easily. And sometimes I crank the MIG up to a spray transfer around 30 volts and 75% on the wire feed with 045 wire (that particular job is 1x3 flat bars onto a 1/2 plate) point being it gets hot on the back of your hand.

      Those Black Stallion gloves handle that without getting crusty? I found that, even if my hands stayed cool enough, the leather on most gloves turns hard as a brick after exposure to that kind of heat. That's why I started buying the metalized gloves. But the nomex lined gloves are a new addition and I've been taking it easy on them.

        Yeah the leather gets crusty if you're not careful, it softens right up again if you sweat into it enough. Basically wear them for a week. In the really nasty jobs, I used to put those aluminum deflector shields on the backs of my hands -- you know the ones that slip over with elastic straps.

        EDIT the spray transfer won't do that to the leather, but arc gouging will

My mig gloves are much lighter and flexible, and my tig gloves are very thin barely noticable. Gloves are cheap, and IMO trying to get one style to fit all processes is a compromise for all. I've also got a tig finger I use that comes in handy sometimes.

          Edit I just did a quick google search and came up with these. I'm heading over to princess auto this weekend and will pick up a set to try out. For $5 it's worth a shot. https://www.princessauto.com/en/deta...es/A-p8789216e
          Came up as "unavailable". But they have these "flight gloves" for $15.
