    Yep, that's why Nitrile gloves are the choice of 8 out of 10 leading proctologists.

    Any of the highly "aromatic", brake-cleaner type solvents will do a number on painted nails, not to mention stripping oils out of the skin. Gloves are good; you might also try the Slip 2000 products as they are water-based.

    +1 for nitrile instead of latex, their a bit more pricey, but not much.

    Nitrile will stop some substances that will go right through latex, and you can develop latex allergies from repeat exposure.

    I use Black Gold Nitrile Mechanic's Glove

    I read about them in a recent issue of Family Handyman magazine and after having used them, they are highly recommended. Bought the gloves from JC Whitney: http://www.jcwhitney.com/black-gold-...wx?filterid=j1

    I had to recheck to make sure I was in the right forum.

    I don't wear any protection, but have become adept at not getting slolvents/cleaners on my hands. A bore brush on a rod can be dipped into a bottle of solvent or if the bottle has a spray attachment, it can be sprayed on the brush. A solvent soaked tooth brush can be used on other parts with a quick evaporating solvent. To be totally safe, I use Blue Wonder in the bore and Gunzilla on everything else.

    Just picked up nitrile gloves at Walmart. FYI the ones in the medical supply area are about three times cheaper than the ones in the paint dept.

    Hope they work out well for you.

    They are blue.

    Are these crappy ones or what? Are the paint dept ones worth three times the price? Now I am wondering about this choice.
