    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Harbor Freight is about as cheap as you can get. They sell different types, including the nitrile gloves.

    Dental Supply outlet. I get my Alginate there also. I get Baxter Dental Exam gloves. They come in a box of 100 pairs, and in different sizes, with left and right gloves in the box. I ended up buying a case of them years ago and still have them! The individual boxes in the carton that remain unopened leave the latex gloves in like new condition. Anyway, I like them. ;)

    Sam's club is another source for latex and vinyl gloves. Find them near the pharmacy counter or the medical products aisle. CVS, Walgreen's, and other big box "drug stores" are yet more sources to look into!

    I get mine at a janitorial supply place that my company uses. Don't know if they're the cheapest, but I like the quality and they are cheaper than the hardware store.

    Becky P One must believe the glass is half full.

    I get mine at Wal-Mart or Sam's. Harbor Freight's nitrile gloves SUCK. The last two or three boxes I got from them were VERY inconsistant on sizes, one glove tight and another falling off, and they tear too easily. I can buy smalls in SAm's and they are all the same size and don't rip. I like the purple ones in Walmart for doing things I want more protection with like coons/foxes as they are a bit thicker. They aren't that much higher for being able to use all of them and not worry about them tearing up.

    I can't use latex gloves for any length of time, but I use them occassionally for real quick jobs. The last I bought from Harbor Freight were also junk. I won't buy gloves there ever again.

    I'll have to check the dental supply I bought my alginate at last time. Didn't think of them. Thanks for the suggestion John.

    Oddly enough I find quite the opposite. I can usually put on a pair and wear them until the end of the day or I skin a Musky....whichever comes first.

    Jim-

    I am kind of with you. The walmart ones ripped fairly often when I would put them on.

    I have not had one harbor freight nitrile glove rip on me yet!

  15. Started with www.Dontheglove.com then I found out that BJ's wholesale had 3 boxes Nitrile for 10 or 12 bucks. Not bad quality and the price was right.
    Wil have to check out Harbor Freight though.
