[TowerTalk] Galling and seizing of SS nuts to SS threaded

I have used both Latex and Vinyl gloves (available in medical supply stores)
Some people are allergic to latex. These gloves are thin and fragile and 
also somewhat porous to many chemicals.  Vinyl is easily dissolved in 
Acetone and some paint thinners.  Latex worked great with Vinyl Ester 
epoxy but it went through Vinyl gloves like they weren't even there

I prefer Latex, but for me with a left hand that is only partially 
useful they can be difficult to get on. Baby powder makes them much 
easier to get on.
I also prefer Vinyl Ester over regular epoxies for making repairs and 
fiberglass parts, BUT it has a very short shelf life. Keep refrigerated 
when not using. It will set up solid, in 6 mo to a year at 72F

As mentioned, I found that it will get all over my  <hands no matter how careful I am.  Removing it from hands later on is done with waterless hand cleaner (contains lanolin as well as other stuff) which I also find at automotive supply store.  (Use this before washing your hands with water.)  This hand cleaner <also works well on clothes BUT it must be applied and worked in to remove the gray grease BEFORE water is applied to the clothes.  (Once the clothes go through a washing machine, the stain will be on it for the life of the clothes.)
