The DEWALT DXMF01052 Short Cuff Fabricator's Gloves are a premium solution for general purpose metal fabrication and light-duty MIG / TIG welding. These general duty welders gloves utilize reinforced leather palms and fire resistant fabrics on the back and cuff to provide you with serious heat protection without sacrificing dexterity.

The long, short, work glove style cuffs have adjustabel hook and loop closures for a snug, secure fit that is easy to put on and remove, stays securely in place while you work, and keeps out dirt, metal shavings and welding debris.
