    First, you listed 5 affixes. Crafted items can get up to 4. I dropped mana leech in these calculations, but it really does not matter, because both light res and mana leech are not the highest affixes. Anyway, my calculations:

    +2 skills : alvl 40
    20 IAS: alvl 43
    +10-15 dex: alvl 56
    21-30 lres: alvl 18
    Required alvl: 56
    Chain Gloves: qlvl 12
    Heavy Bracers: qlvl 43
    Vambraces: qlvl 69
    Required ilvls:
    Chain Gloves: ilvl 62
    Heavy Bracers: ilvl 78
    Vambraces: ilvl 78
    I assume you will craft Chain Gloves, as they require lowest ilvl, and
    are easiest to get.
    Since ilvl = [(0.5 * clvl)] + [(0.5 * ilvl)], with [] meaning round down,
    you need clvl 65 to be able to gamble 100% chain gloves of required ilvl
    (The maths is <(62 * 2 + 5) / 2>, <> = "round up"). Gambling is the
    most reliable way to get base items of required ilvl.
    Can anyone confirm whether my calculations are correct or wrong?

    You don't want to gamble gloves when you can buy them at a set lvl. In nightmare, always ilvl = clvl +5 for shoped items. So you have to include that in your calculation and not gamble.

    Second, you want your crafted gloves to have ilvl 71 so that they will always get 4 affixes. Therefore, often - unless you are after ldd crafts - buying and crafting with clvl 69 is a very solid choice. You will always get 4 affixes, almost all interesting mods can spawn and some uninteresting mods can't spawn.
    I've done it and I've gotten quite some ias/knockback gloves - with life leech, fire res or +1 skill. Eventually, I'll get one of those goldy items aswell.
