    Take a look at these. Worth looking into. I've spent almost as much on mechanics gloves.

    They look great, but do they come in sizes that fit manly ham hands?

    They are very good for rough work, but not for fine touch stuff.

    I suppose they can be altered to accommodate your trigger finger.[YD]

    And just HOW would you alter a glove you can't cut, smash or burn?;)

    Bet my angle grinder will do the trick.

    If you look at their site they offer a range of gloves for different purposes. Either way, they look burly enough to Huck through the bush with, not planning on doing heart surgery with them.

    Both of those would be Ill advised, unless the glove was held down flat and solidly secured. It would be bad around to get caught up in the cutter.
    I think I would use a paper cutter or sheres to cut it, and a drill press in reverse to drill holes for stitching the raw edge.

    Oh. They are good for the rough stuff, you just can't run screws, nails, or small tools, (that type of thing) you might be able to control a socket wrench, but maybe not. I need gloves with finer control.

    If I wasn't smart enough to secure something like that before cutting with an angle grinder, which was a joke, I shouldn't be planning on surviving post SHTF. At least I can count on you to always look for the negative so I'm careful not to post useless items.[sarc2][winkthumb]

    I wouldn't Kell, I rely on your input and advice on how to reinvent them. ;):LOL:

    The biggest problem I have with them, is that, since they're primarily designed for emergency workers, the only colors they come in are bright green or bright red. Not a bad thing, for emergency workers, but for a survival type situation, a nice subtle color would probably be a better idea.

    I sent them an email to see if they offer, or can offer something for an operator in the field. I will update when they answer.

    You might ask if they can be dyed.

    Or painted?

    Paint tends to flake off on everything when applied to a fabric.
    Dye changes the color of the threads .

    Understood. Consider that flaking paint would interrupt the outlines --

    It also gets on everything it touches. If you chose to go that route, make sure you use "fabric paint" from Michael's or some similar craft store. It would be less likely to leave tell-traces of you, everywhere.
