CJT Posted May 3, 2013 Report Share Posted May 3, 2013 Hello, this became very relevant to me again last night. While roughing out the shape with my dremel, the wood rasp bit caught the wood and traveled down and across my fingernail and part way up my finger. These high rpms can really do a number on flesh. Good news, the blood didn't get on the carving. I'm interested in suggestions for safe hand protection while carving with rotary tools. I'm concerned with fabric based gloves, since some bits (particularly wood carving bits) can catch the fibers and end up causing even more damage. My first thought would be to try a thin leather glove, but I imagine that would make it almost impossible to hold onto the piece with any confidence. Perhaps a leather archery (three fingered) glove? Very best, CJ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
