Glove for Ladies

PostBy: Smoker858 On: Sun Nov 18, 2012 7:54 pm

Well since I travel a lot my wife is in charge of te Hitzer. If it ever should die out she will kick on the Nat gas, no problem. So far the spousal unit has run 4 weeks straight with only 1 kaboom. The issue is gloves to dump the ash pan 2x a day.

I have leather welding gloves which while too large are also not great for holding a hot pan while being a slow mover. Any smaller gloves for the lady coal handler? Maybe the Hitzer Ash Tote is the answer............

All comments appreciated. TIA

Try finding a kitchen accessories store and buy some 'hot pad mitts' .
They should have some smaller sizes than welding gloves.

Go to a welding supply shop and buy tig welding gloves in small. They would be perfect !

Tillman makes Good tig gloves and so does BSX ... Try the tigsters from them

I personally use these gloves for my everyday operations.

Smoker, its great the wife takes care of the stove like that, wish mine did more then just enjoy the heat it gives off !

If you don't mind me asking about your natural gas, I just installed a natural gas boiler this year and did away with my fuel oil unit :D , my question is do you find it still allot cheaper to heat with coal compared to your natural gas prices ? Not being nosy and looking for dollar amounts just trying to find out costs comparisons between natural gas and coal in your area to give me an idea.

I have not gotten my first bill yet but with the kitchen range (natural gas) only it was $13 a month here and $11 of the 13 was delivery charges or some *censored* like that.

I actually have the ove glove! My Mom bought it for us when the wife and I decided to burn for our heat. It's an amazing glove and I keep it hanging right by the stove!

And a thing that can helps is to have an ash pan lid having a handle on it. Much more easy to work the pan out... Maybe you already have one?

echos67 here is a forum link to a fuel comparison chart http://nepacrossroads.com/fuel-comparis ... ulator.php

To answer your question directly, I heated with wood for over 30 years now changed up to coal. Free wood is to difficult to obtain in the area I live. Also even if I did still get easy access to wood, coal is so much less work. As to costs, the last time I checked our nat gas vs. what I paid for delivered bagged coal, the cost was equal per BTUs consumed. My point is a central heat source is what we enjoy no matter the cost. Actually nat gas is cheaper this year as stockpiles are at an all time high per the Fox 5 news. So as I am breaking around even, we greatly enjoy the comfprt of burning coal.

Your stove is a beauty.

Thank you all for the responses. Now to purchase a few pairs of girlie gloves.

Now we have the Hitzer ash pan tote with lid. Will practice using it Thanksgiving weekend.

I use the smallest welder glove I could find. Leather work gloves will not work - been there, done that. Not only is it important that hand part fit you should get a glove that extends well up the forearm. I have scars on my forearm from my early years when I brushed against the open door edges. I'm a little slow so it took me a couple of years to learn if the door is open, the gloves are on. :) Take care, Lisa

Perfect, I forgot about that fuel comparison calculator and is just what I needed. Thanks.

no need to buy a glove too long. Just try these:

I use these when I am welding in the summer .

These are the actual ones I have but you can get them without the thumb hole as well.

you won't burn , cut or scrape your arms with these. They are good to use in a lot of situations.

I use fireman gloves. Works great and can handle the heat. Just find a fire supply store online that sells them.

I just use some cheap fireplace gloves from a discount store. The pan is not that hot after all (not mine at least) as it is emptied pre-shake and has dead ash in it. More important than insulation is to have a secure grip on it so you can hold it with one hand and open a door.
