gloves for the shop
most of my hobby involves real hard woods - oak, maple, etc.
I plane for thickness, I rip for straight, etc.
with the result that I seem to attract a lot of bleeding cuts from sharp edges on the various pcs. using fingers to guide 'feets of stock' through the router, TS, etc. almost always produces 'blood on the boards' - and worse, cuts/slices make for tender fingers and that can lead to disasters when the stabbing pain causes one to flinch....
I have been leery of gloves because there is the snag&drag factor - dragging fingers into a moving cutting blade is really not recommended . . . . plus the general loss of tactile feedback and control.
any experiences on using gloves in the shop? particular brands that offer a snug fit + good friction finger-to-work piece?
just bought a box of 100 bandaids for the shop,,,, so it's not a must fix today issue.....
