My wood shop teacher told me years ago not to wear gloves because they can get pulled into machines. Etc. I agree. Personally I agree, plus I like knowing where my hands are. Opinions?

im the same way. Not so much the machine thing, but i hate the feeling. The only time i wear gloves, if its freezing and im doing outdoor work. But in my fabrication shop, i only wear one leather glove when i weld. I can tell a lot about a bolt going in or not by feel. when i wear gloves, even mechanics gloves, i find myself fumbling around a lot.

I wear rubber/nitrile when working with fluids/automotive stuff (just to keep the hands clean).

For shop work (wood and metal), I wouldn't wear gloves. I hear table saws and gloves can be dangerous.

Definitely agree for wood working or machine shop work. But I always wear them when working on vehicles. I get the "dot" gloves from ag suppliers. Knit synthetic gloves with rubber dots for grip. I can do all but the finest work and my hands don't get cut and banged up. And they stay clean. When the gloves get greasy and oily, they get tossed. $1 per pair. No big deal. And I use them for welding all but heavy work.

No gloves in wood shop or changing the oil but I wear them fixing barb wire fence and a few other blood letting chores.

I wear gloves to weld and when handling sheet metal (special gloves with steel staple like things on the palm) or fluids otherwise no.

That’s one I should have thought of … put up a bunch of corrugated tin lately and it’s getting thinner and sharper so leather gloves were used for that …

Yeah I usually don't like them. Sometimes I'll wear the thin rubber ones when changing oil or doing other greasy stuff, or when handling a lot of tree branches that have thorns.

Otherwise I can't stand them. I also hate hats.

I can't generally wear hats, my head is too big.

I wear leather dress gloves at graveside services in cold weather, but even that's a PITA because some families insist on shaking hands with me as they leave and I was always taught to take off my glove to shake hands...it becomes tedious.

You folks need to try deerskin work gloves for tasks other than fluid changes--much better than cow leather. Warmer in cold weather, cooler in hot weather, softer, stronger, etc.
