Default Gloves and woodworking.

I have never been a fan of gloves of any kind. In my "twilight years" [I like that word] I am using them more. I see some people on You Tube using them with saws and I think that is dangerous. My problem is getting scrapes and they bleed and bleed because I take a low dose aspirin every day. So what do you guys do? Do you have a glove you really like?

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I feel your pain...literally. I sometimes wear gloves when installing screws to protect my fingers from the burrs.....not too smart when the screw threads grab onto the gloves.
I've seen the wrap material that they use around the finger tips to give some traction when pushing wood on a table saw or router table.
Cutting down on dish washing duties will cut down on the skin softening.

bout the only time I wear gloves in the shop is while doing some finishes and milling rough cut lumber...
I use the below gloves. Purchase a size too small, so they fit like a second skin, a bit of a pain to get on when new, but
after a couple minutes, they stretch out. There are no guarantee's when wearing any kinda glove in the shop, but I"m
pretty comfortable with these

The only glove I will wear when working around things that go round and round really fast are the nitril gloves. I feel, and this is solely my opinion, they offer enough protection, yet will still tear and not pull my hands in. Mind you, I've fortunately never had to test this theory yet.

For just general work around the house or on the cars, I will either wear cotton work gloves or mechanix style gloves.

I've seen several accidents resulting from wearing gloves around spinny machinery, so I won't wear gloves when running my machines. But I do wear leather gloves when moving lumber or sheet goods.

I wear gloves for applying finishes. Don't wear them at all around spinning blades or cutters. No glove, not even chainmail will stop a saw blade or router bit. I, too have to be very careful of scratches and nicks. As someone recently said growing old is not for sissies.

Ditto with others - no gloves around spinning things but yes to protect my hands when I'm moving rough lumber, Nitrile or Vinyl gloves for finishes and stains, and heavy leather gloves with hot things.

Sometimes I think my skin will tear if the wind blows a bit too hard, it's gotten that thin! But, I don't wear gloves when running power tools in the shop.

Only when handling stock. NEVER around spinning blades.
A little blood is better than a lot.
No long sleeves or jewelry, either. I once got a sleeve caught in a stationary belt sander. Ruined the shirt, scared me good, lesson learned.

I am just going to say +1 for what has already been said.

Dang Don, it sounded like you wrote my reply!

Gloves used when finishing or handling rough stock.

No gloves around anything rotating.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
