A great way to save your hands from repeated washings and cuts is to wear
surgical gloves while repairing machines. They have great tactile feel and
take the brunt of sharp edges that normally keep a pinball tech's hands
constantly healing. The only down side is that CP-100 and other playfield
cleaners break down the latex in the gloves, so you have to remove them to
do this, or the glove will remove itself. These gloves are cheaply and
readily available at your friendly neighborhood medical mart.
