'Defend O Finger' allows you to use your hand or finger to rest against your hot work piece. It does this by insulating you from the heat source, by separating you with layers of heat resistant weaved material. It simply slips over your gloved finger like an elasticated sock.
If you're like me, you need to rest/steady your hand against something to produce a good looking weld (otherwise I am like uncle Arthur, shaking and waving around). That's easy to do if your doing a small butt weld on a table, but anything more and your cooking your hand or fingers trying to rest them on your hot work piece/table and forget about welding pipe, you have to free hand that stuff. Furthermore, there is no way you can do a second pass resting your hand on the pipe...if your gloves aren't burning, your skin is.
Defend O Finger is Certified heat resistant to 650+ C / 1200 F+ (Cherry red steel)(Flame temp in photo is 1500 C! and although its not rated for this it handled the heat for 10 minutes no problem with only low heat reaching the glove). It is non-conductive (so no risk of Arc'ing or heat transfer). It won't burn or go brittle. It is also abrasion and cut resistant. Petrol and engine chemical resistant (not effected by acetone residue ).
The Defend O Finger allows you to rest your hand/finger while welding against even cherry red steel without burning. This Makes it a great and inexpensive addition to your toolbox, whether you are a professional or a home handy man.
Don't burn your finger or hands again, use a Defend 'O' finger for a quality weld.
Recommended for TIG, MIG, ARC, GAS welding or for anything where you need to lean on heated surfaces for short periods.
WARNING: GIVEN ENOUGH TIME AND HEAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO BURN YOURSELF WHILE USING A DEFEND-O-FINGER. ADDITIONALLY, WHILE THE FINGER/S WITHIN THE D.O.F ARE PROTECTED ANYTHING/LIMBS SURROUNDING IT ARE NOT. DEFEND-O-FINGERS ARE DESIGNED TO BE USED WITH TIG WELDING GLOVES (ARC ARE FINE TOO THOUGH), NOT BARE SKIN. IF YOUR WELDING BARE SKINNED YOUR ASKING TO GET BURNED. ALL WAYS USE 'BEST WELDING PRACTICE' TECHNICS WHEN WELDING.
