Thanks for all the ideas. I did try the tape. Got some of em out. I think most of them are still in there, but it isn't bothering me as bad. Probablby because they got pushed down under the surface of the skin and aren't snagging anymore!

I think I will get me some of those mechanics gloves. I guess I always wondered what a mechanic really needed gloves for, other than just keeping your hands clean.

Well, appearantly, I wasn't wearing apropriate protection!

I was using a dremmel to cut the fender tabs to fit on the outer side of my springer (DNA, I think) fender mounts. Bare hands and arms. Lesson learned.

Have no fear!!!!
The slivers will start to rust and then the infection will help you find 'em.........

Once they stop snagging you almost forget about them- until you grab hold of something and put pressure on one!!

There are some Mechanix Wear knock offs out there at 1/2 the price.

All part of the fun!!

I know I am bringing this up from the dead but I had to share how I do this. It is extremely annoying getting those slivers that feel like fiberglass in your fingers. The way I do it works every time and only takes a few minutes.

Im sure everyone here takes a shower so make the shower as hot as you can stand it because you want to open all your pores. I use a nylon finger nail brush that have 1/2 to 3/4 medium stiff bristles, kind of like tooth brush bristles.
After standing in a hot shower for a few minutes, soap up the brush and comb down your arms to your finger tips. Comb in one direction at first to get all the shavings that lay in that direction. Comb down between your fingers in one direction. Rinse the brush, soap it again and then comb up from your fingers to wherever the metal ended, most likely you had a short sleeve shirt on so comb to your shoulders or elbows, however high the metal got up.
Once youve gone in one direction then the other, just scrub the shit out of your hands and arms to get the left over ones
The softer nylon will grab the tiny shards and drag them out of your skin. Usually takes me a few minutes and they are gone.

I use dawn dish soap because it cleans the grease off as well

Hope this helps

I wear old military uniformshirts for grinding etc, and wear gloves and a face shield. I also wear face shields when using a Dremel because all those little attachments sling small chips, brush strands and that green scrubbie-looking stuff also found on Rolocs.
If you work on steel you can leave old hard drive magnets or rare earth magnets next to the hole you are abusing. They get a lot of chips. I put magnets in sandwich bags or nitrile gloves so I can easily get most of the chips back off them.
If you weld or grind overhead, wear foam ear plugs.
If you want clean ear canals and sinuses, you can buy cheap syringes at the drug store and rinse them out with warm water or saline. I learned that from my pipe welding instructor and it works very well. You also get to see how much crap you're breathing. Noses function as strainers but the junk has to go somewhere.
