keep welding gloves soft and pliable

when your old gloves get so stiff that you cant feel or pick up pieces just get out the boot grease and blow dryer and work those gloves like a pair of hunting boots. i use huberds shoe grease but any will work. grease them up and stretch the thumb and fingers by pushing them on the vice handle. give this a try. i have used the same pair for a year and they are better than new.
