My simple tip that has made a supreme change in the appearance of my
once tattered fingers is rubber finger tips. They are great for
buffing when the metal gets hot and for avoiding that often nick on
the skin from the grinder. I was warned about using gloves for
buffing in school and from Orchid veterans due to the severe risks of
losing a digit. I buy the Swingline brand from the office supply
($1.60 for 24). The rubber is thicker than other brands and if you go
to Staples, they don’t stock them but they will order them from their
catalog and arrive the following day. They last a long time and they
come in 4 sizes. Check them out!
