7014 Welding Rod Settings, Uses & Amperage

In some cases, you may also opt for the E7014. As an all-position welding rod, the 7014 is generally used for welding low and mild alloy steels with concomitant iron-powder covering. This iron powder coating usually produces a high deposition rate. The end results are smooth beads with very fine ripples. The use of E7014 …

6013 Welding Rod, Settings, Polarity and Amps

6013 4.0mm welding rod

There are many types of electrodes. But one of the most popular electrodes for beginners is the E6013. As you can see, electrodes are defined and characterized by four numbers. The very first two numbers “60” stand for its tensile strength which means the E6013’s tensile strength is up to 59,700 pounds per inch or …

How To Stick Weld

Stick welding also called Shielded Metal Arc Welding, is among one of the most demanding processes to learn. Especially for those who do not weld every day or are new to welding. Experienced welders make this process look easy. They take a stinger, insert an electrode in and give us some tremendous looking welds one …
