View Full Version : Favorite TIG Gloves

What are everyone's favorite TIG gloves.
I bought some Tillman 24C for my first gloves. I have a Thermal Arc 185 and typically weld on lighter weight steel and stainless steel but plan on doing some 1/8" aluminum.

I love the Tillman 24D's (24C's with a 2" cuff rather than the 4").
I've been using them for years and they work great.
For MIG I use Tillman 32K's (PigSkin).

Yep, like the tillmans too. I use Diablo gloves for everything else (pigskin).

I've been using the Tillman 24C as well. Though I finally ordered proper fitting ones that came in just today. Apparently I have smaller than average hands and no one stocks them XS.

Anyone try the Miller's? They at least look nice...
I dont want to commit a welding faux pas!

I like the tillman 24 cm fits so nice when they are brand new
I always keep a pair of the tillmans around, but I find they are so thin, that unless I am doing just tig welding all day, I wear em out too fast- so I usually just wear 3$ all leather "drivers gloves" I get at the welding supply store in bags of a dozen pairs.
Yep, they are a bit thicker, but I find I dont have any problem with 90% of my work, and for the really fine stuff, I put on the Tillmans.
But I am constantly running back and forth to the saw, or the sander, or bending pieces to fit, and then stopping to move a 20 footer of something, or help somebody lift something, and it just seems silly to wear out those 15 dollar gloves so quick.
