No where in this post is there a mention of using the proper glove for a ta

Just this last year's winter I discovered these compression work gloves I h
ave seen some of the guys wearing for some time now. The arthritis in my h
ands made it almost impossible to work, no matter how much Ibuprofin/Alleve
/aspirin I took. So in desperation I bought a pair of them at H Depot to k
eep some of the cold out and get a little support for my aching hands.
They actually worked pretty well. I was putting up siding and trims outsid
e a house, them moved inside for some miscellaneous work. My hands still h
urt, but gripping was easier and strangely, they didn't ache as long after
the end of the day as they did when I wasn't wearing them.
They are already in the tool box. When wearing them, I will make sure I ke
ep my hands off the spinning saw blades and away from spinning drill bits.
Kinda like I do now...
The reason it might look like the glove was dropped is simply because of
how fast the blade pulled the glove. But in fact what happened is the
glove was slid towards the blade and when the saw blade caught the
glove, the board was yanked. That's why it looked like the glove was
dropped on the blade. Some people would rather deny reality than

No, actually you can clearly see what happens in the video (even if you
must slow it down) and it's not like what Leon says. The glove was not
dropped onto the saw blade. The glove was slid into the saw blade and
that violent tug of the glove being pulled into the blade is what caused
the appearance of the glove being dropped.

This may be one of those things where the blade won't grab the glove often
at all, but when it does the results are worse than it would be without
gloves. That would be reason enough to discourage the practice.
