3839Re: Screacher sheets
- Sep 2, 2012Hi Guys,
To advance one more step on the wear gloves thing, I wear gardening gloves with a latex coating like these ones http://www.mailordertrees.co.uk/Briers++General+Gardener++Gloves/0_caaa342/PRAB123.htm?page=Gardening_Gloves
and cut the tip of the thumb and forefinger off so that I can tie knots etc.
The latex gives me more grip on the sheets than ordinary gloves which keeps my grip from getting tired and they are protective enough to keep me from getting blisters. They don't last for ages but they only cost about $10 a pair from the local supermarket.
