There are safety gloves with a kind of chain mail imbeded in them that make it impossible to cut yourself. All the general safety companies have them. They are used by shop and assembly workers mostly. I even got some for my building's Super since he has to sort through the recycle stuff and broken glass is often there.
However, I don't think they are very chemically resistant. So the gloves will have to be changed out when you start working with chemicals.

A step in one of the analyses we do in our lab involves connecting Tygon tubing to the end of a glass tube. We have Kevlar gloves for this purpose, but I=E2=80=99ve heard of an additional safety device that can also be used for this purpose=E2=80=94though I can=E2=80=99t find one. I=E2=80=99ve done the obligatory Google search with no luck. Has anyone heard of or used anything that reduces the risk of getting cut while attaching hose/tubing to glass tubes or rods?
Many thanks; I hope everyone has a great weekend!
