I will side with the more experienced persons on this list, using
gloves while buffing is risky business.
I have only used gloves on very rare occasions while buffing, these
were large items and my hands were no where near the buffing wheel,
and I was still scared to death.
IF you are intimate with the buffing wheel, DO NOT USE GLOVES!!!!
A lot of us making this recomendation have decades of polishing
under our belts. A cup of water is all you need to cool down the
piece if it gets hot, or use work holding devices.
