You're joking, right?
These gloves are designed to keep you from getting hurt from things like metal
flashing - like a big paper cut, and from incidental cuts on unfinished metal in
an industrial setting.
If you hit your hand with a hammer while wearing them, you won't damage the
glove, but you will damage your hand as much as if you weren't wearing them.
Have you considered the impact speed of a saw blade tooth of any type going who
knows how fast?
Also, wearing gloves while using on a lathe are an invitation to disaster.
Save the gloves for when you hand-sharpen the lawn mower blades.

i ave a pair of kevlar gloves that are supposedly cut proof. i know you
cant use them on a table saw because if they catch...; but on a band saw
catching doesn't seem like it would be all that dangerous, it would just jam
in the throat plate. Anyone use them?
