What Maynard said! Next best thing are the lined leather police gloves. Plenty warm enough for me and thin enough so you can still use your hands. They are a little pricey(last pair I bought was 3 years ago, about $35.00). Try a local police supply store.

Try to find a pair of glove liners made from polypropylene. The material is Uncle Sam's new material for underalls. Comes in two wieghts, arctic and a lighter one. It is a material some call 'wicking' material. I worked in the streets rehabbing sewers for several years. The liners kept my hands warm...have to wriggle the fingers from time to time, but! I don't get to play in the snow like you folks do, but work outside in cold weather again, this time running roofing crews. Try it, can be bought war surplus or from sporting goods stores

two notes I'd love to try out the new technology in gloves, but with a 24 size ring finger it is very hard to find something that fits. The "chopper glove" which Maynard recommended is standard in arsenal. second is for a auto spelling check feature to help people like me who have a hard time pronouncing words and then to try to spell. We come across as uneducated.

IF YOU CAN AFFORD THEM Olesons Grocery stores in Manistee and Traverse City Michigan have mittens. $65 Olesons raises buffalo (sp) for meat to sell and they have the hides tanned and made into hand sewn mittens. My hand were damaged in an industrial accident 25 years ago (fingers on right hand were burn't to the bone 3rd. degree by molten salt) and we love to ice fish, these mittens work for me when nothing else will. I wish I could afford to have a buffalo coat made. good Luck, John

I have a set of these http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-US-ARMY-HUNTING-EXTREME-COLD-WEATHER-MITTENS-GLOVES_W0QQitemZ6585976245QQcategoryZ36077QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem I wear them along with a wool glove insert. Keeps me warm but may be to bulk to moving levers and such on tractor. Great for footbal games and such, not sure about tractoring. I wear gloves when blowing snow. If you come acroos the military extreme cold hood I would HIGHLY reccomend it if you need it.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
