This is what I mean. I wear tight fitting gloves that aren't much different than just my hands other than I don't get cuts and splinters. I'll admit, I've used my table saw and drill press with them on, but I'm always very conscious to stay clear.All the rules in the world will not keep you safe unless common sense is used as well. Handling rough lumber full of splinters bare handed because if you have gloves on you might use your table saw without thinking in my opinion borders upon the ridiculous.
There are many different styles of gloves, there are the $1.49 variety of "one size fits all" that are extremely loose fitting on most hands. Then we have mechanics gloves that are very tight fitting, really not that different than working with bare hands in most cases.
You should never run a machine with any kind of gloves on, that is a given and I have no argument there, I have an argument with generalities that make no sense in the real world.
