I know that using a leather or mechanic's glove is dangerous, but I think using the blue nitrile or vinyl gloves should be fairly safe. I've had tonnes of these gloves fall apart when I ask them to stand up to automotive mechanic's abuse, and the other day a long curl snagged and tore one glove on my drill press without any ill effect, not even a tug. I often don't realize they've snagged something and tore until I feel the ATF or grease inside the glove. I tried them with my lathe, and notice I get far fewer of the tiny metal slivers I often get and none of the black hands from turning the cranks. Quite enjoying it. I can't see how they'd ever stand up to being snagged and pulling my hand into the machine, they just fall apart too easy. Thoughts?
