I have ten fingers that seem to work just fine.

They are older model fingers, i.e. +30 or so years, but are still holding up quite well.

Out of all the ones we have went through throughout the years, these have been the best. However, they too eventually break>>>>>>>>>>

I just peel back the ears down to 4 or so inches from the end, grip the ear covered end, wipe twice, and toss after use...no need to wash your hands with this method.

Those are almost identical to mine from the 50-60's. I've got some of the newer variety, but they are cheap in comparison and tend to fall apart quickly.....must be made in China?

What I was hoping to do is move up in quality and appearance.

We have tried all kinds but keep coming back to those. You are right, the plastic breaks fairly easy on them anymore.

I use a couple of large aluminum nails. Not perfect but they don't break.

Yah know John, that is one of the few tools I don't own....but I could probably turn a few out on a drill press.
You've got me to thinking, a couple of corn cob holders made out of bullet casings might be rather interesting.....wonder what else I could make some out of?

We've been using the ones on the left, for quite a while, but most have become brittle, and break. I just bought a bunch of these others, in WM, about a month ago. They seem to be made better. We'll see how they hold up.

Thanks Capt Will. I might drop by Walmart on my way to Lowes today and see if I can find those. I hate going to that store but will take my camera to see if I can get some good pics for the Wal Mart thread while I am there.
