My fav. is 1/8-7014.
I use 5/32-7014 for thicker stuff but sometimes 2 passes of the 5/32 for thicker stuff works better. Maybe it's a "sweet spot" thing for my old buzz box.
I'm curious to see others recommendations / experiences.
Sometimes it's hard to shell out for a whole box of rods just to see if it'll work better for ya.

What do the numbers mean (6011, 7014, 7018, ...)? I also see that some of them have 180 in front of them. Does that have any significance? I'm looking at Lincoln Electric rods for reference.

These should help:

3/32 seams pretty small for that heavy of material. If I had to stick weld it I'd be using 1/8 or 5/32 as Steve suggested, if you have the power Luke
The first two numbers are the tensile strength in thousands of pounds , the next number is position, a 1 is all position and the last is the type of coating.


RE: Table for my mill - dallen - 05-21-2015

take for instance 7018, the 70 means 70,000 pounds tensile strength, the 1 means its an all position rod, and the 8 tells you what type of flux is on the rod.

with 6011, its 60,000 pounds, all position, with a cellulose based flux and because its for AC it has an arc stabilizer in the flux.

6010 same thing except no arc stablizer

I see from one of Ed's links that an E in front of the number means it's for MMA, is there a problem with using it for a real stick welder?


RE: Table for my mill - dallen - 05-21-2015

the E from Ed's post say's its an Electrode which will burn in any welder far as I know.


RE: Table for my mill - Vinny - 05-21-2015

I was referring to this: E just means the electrode is for MMA welding and has a flux coating.
