    Looking for gloves for grinding and general metalwork handling and protection. Welding gauntlets are too bulky, but I need something to protect my hands from cuts (and arms to some extent) and grinder debris. But also, with decent feel and idealy touch screen compatibility....
    Any suggestions?

    Riggers normally given out.

    TIG gloves much nicer though.

    yep pigskin tig gloves would do you the very best , but you do get used to gloves even standard welding gloves become ok after a while ,, usually just as they are breaking in , they wear out.

    those new ones look sweet granted mig so with the reinforcement at the thumb they will be too thick for tig , but Ill bet they are great for mig.. I like unlined gloves for tig .

    do they have a uk retail outlet ?

    The cut 5 gloves above definitely aren’t grinding specific, as said the backs attract grindings, go hard, then burn, melt through and then burn the backs of your hands. Great for working with sharp steel, bandsaw etc

    These last ages but aren’t cheap unless eurocarparts have an offer

    if I’m doing a lot of grinding in a fixed position then I just use a left Mig gauntlet and a gecko on my right hand for better feel

    as for forearms I just wear welding sleeves and always have a face mask with built in eye protector and crack on!

    You need to find a decent trade and public shop. Any big town will have them, anywhere which sells gas and tig supplies will also sell decent gloves. Just need to know your local suppliers...
