Sounds like I'm on the right path. If this happens I will trim off as much excess as I can. I do sand and file as much as I can; I'm lifting almost every day so it's difficult to keep up.
I'm a long time lover of Bag Balm & Badgerbalm. This is the first winter I haven't had cracked skin on my knuckles.
I'm off to get some benzoin tincture... and another box of tape.
