I wanted to start doing metalworking for a long time and I finally got an angle grinder of 4 1\2". I also bought the appropriate safety equipment face shield, some safety glasses and I'm planning to use a thick leather jacket that I always use in the workshop.
Though I'm very confused about the gloves, I always intend to use both of my hands to handle the device with the guard on at all time so I'm not worried about my gloves getting caught in the disc, what I am mainly worried about is that the disc explodes and lacerates or cuts off my fingers. I've seen that the most common gloves are leather gloves mostly goat skin but I've seen videos of people putting a glove against an angle grinder and it goes through it like it's nothing. Also also I've read that some people want to feel how the blade is behaving so that's another fact to take into consideration.
I don't know which is better a leather MIG welding glove or an ANSI A9 cut resistant glove??, I want to keep my fingers as they are.
