I want to STRONGLY second James Binnion's advice - DO NOT WEAR
GLOVES around polishing wheels or anything else that spins rapidly,
nor finger cots, nor anything else on your fingers. Cloth, rubber,
leather need only a slight contact with a piece of spinning
machinery to get caught and pulled faster than you can respond -
I can't believe there is so much bad advice being put out on this
particular subject. Yes the work gets hot. Use a slower wheel. dip
your piece in water a lot, or even accept a lower rate of production,
Keep your fingers, Even if they're blackened and calloused, they're
still pretty handy if they're still attached to your hand.

the rest of them are still here with me if I need them for work..
