Work gloves.

I've been having a lot of trouble with gloves. When it's really cold in order to work outdoors I try to wear heavy insulated gloves but I keep having to take them off to use my hands. I usually end up then wearing jersey gloves which bend easier. The only problem the jersey gloves are so thin my hands get too cold too quick to work. Then I got to thinking how hot my hands got this summer staining cabinets so I put a pair of latex exam gloves on under the jersey gloves and my hands stayed just as warm as the heavy insulated gloves. In fact they were slightly sweaty.

That is an inventive solution to your problem.

However, I I have a better solution to cold hands outdoors. I just refrain from going outdoors.

As a Safety professional, I've heard of a lot of ideas that work but this one is new to me. Thanks for sharing!!:thumbs:

When George's thermometer hits 55 it's probably time to drag out the full on winter gear.

I don't know the older I get the easier I get cold. Here it's only getting in the mid 20's some days and my hands hurt so bad I can't use them.

I do not even own any full winter gear anymore. When it is too cold to play golf (below 40 deg and sunny) I do not even go out.

I'll have to try that. I don't own an adequate pair of work gloves. Quick mental inventory of all the gloves:
2 pr each in the workshop, inside the front door, inside the back/basement door and at least 3 pr in the shed. All different.

This fall, after 31 years, I finally insulated my garage and installed a AC/heat unit.
It warms my garage to a comfortable temperature in just a few minutes.
I am very happy with the results.

Learned that trick many years ago. Also, put bread wrappers on your feet for the same effect. Just don't stay out too long!

I've spent the last three days framing a green house---below zero all three days---

I hate gloves but sure needed them---so I wore shooting glove/mittens---the glove has the fingers cut off---and a flip down mitten to cover them between needing to use your finger tips.

I hate those also--but it got the building done---

my fingers hurt just reading that (below zero temps).

I am NOT going to cry now when I step into a 30 degree shop tomorrow morning.

I guess I'm a big baby because I heat my shop to 50 all the time and about 65 when I'm working.

I grew up in upstate NY. My father used to have us do that in the winter when we were going our snowmobile riding, etc. He'd have us remove the inside liners to our snowmobile boots and then put the liners inside plastic bags, then put the liners back in the boots. He always said it helped keep the moisture from getting to the liner, thus keeping our feet warmer. I actually forgot about that little trick. It always seems to work.
