Hello, I'm a bit confused on what the overprotective gloves are. I was planning to order these gloves here (or something equivalent): http://www.aikencolon.com/Knipex-98-65- ... -1429.html
but are the HV gloves sold with overprotective gloves?

Thanks

This response is from Dan Bocci, Argonne National Labs and member of the FH rules committee:
-------------------

These look like appropriate Electrical gloves, but the team would still need overgloves. The idea is the inner glove is electrically insulating (usually rubber or something). The outer glove (usually leather), is there to protect the inner glove from a puncture or abrasion when working.

A while ago CPSparky posted a link to a source of low-cost insulated gloves in another thread. Here's their page of all gloves, including 500 V insulated gloves for under $50 and covers for under $10.

I haven't done research on what the best low-cost source is--that just the source the CPSparky passed along last May.

hey this looks like a real good source!
Do the cable cutters also have to be manufactured in the last year as well?

thanks

No, cable cutters don't expire. (Unless you try to cut frame tubes with them--then they expire really quickly.)
