NEVER wear anything below the elbow in a workshop. No long hair without a hair net either. If I have a question about saftey or work methods or tool selection I look to what the Pro’s in that field use. I have never seen anyone in a machine shop wearing gloves or long sleeves. I like to choose my tool brands on this basis also. The only time I put on gloves is when loading and handeling rough sawn boards to avoid slivers. You are very lucky to not have been hurt a lot more. I have heard stories of long hair being cought in a drill press and part of a scalp torn out!
