Gloves

I've been installing for 25 years and until now, I've never worn gloves while installing tile. But my fingers are starting to really get chewed up. Does anybody here where gloves while installing that can get wet and have good feel

Try venom industrial gloves. Disposable and tuff enough to last.

Yep I wear them. Some tiles are pretty gritty on the backs and tear up the fingers. I get these from Lowe's and they work great.

I like the Venom ones also. Bought a box of these orange ones last time around and they seem to be fine also. Got a size too small though.

I'll add another recommendation for the Venom gloves. They are pretty thick and will last a long time without tearing up.

Harbor Freight's extra heavy duty 9 mil nitrile are stronger, thicker, and cheaper than the Venoms. They also have a slightly longer collar I believe. Great for tile.

I like the Thicksters, they are 14 mil latex. And hold up great.

I'll 2nd the Thicksters. I used the orange Dubarys for years til they went out of bidness. I like Thicksters better any way. Easier to throw away gloves that cost less than 50cents each. I bet I got a dozen or so strawberries cuz I dint wanna throw out the Dubary with a hole in the finger😗
