Here is my “Finger Cots Protect Skin” tip that appeared in the “Tips” section on page 17 of the AAW August 2022 “American Woodturner” Journal.
Finger cots are like a disposable glove for one finger. I like to use them when a five-finger glove would be overkill—like when spreading cyanoacrylate (CA) glue with my finger. I typically glue the pith at the bottom of my hollow forms to prevent cracks.
You can buy finger cots from your local pharmacy or online. They are used in the medical world to keep finger bandages from getting wet.
