Default Tungsten Carbide Cutter - How to avoid splinters?


In order to speed metalworks up a bit (and to make it easier), I just bought a tungsten carbide cutter for my dremel.

It works very well, very precisely, doesn't seem to wear out while cutting / filing metal...

But does anyone have any tips on how to avoid those very small metal splinters that stick to skin like hell, and make every touch hurt a little bit ? Besides the obvious, wearing gloves, but I also got them on my arms, in my clothes, on the floor (carpet!)...?

Since there are some metalworking guys out there, maybe there is some trick to it? Or is pain part of the job ...?
