All you need to know to get your electrodes started stick welding. This video is for everyone who’s asked for it, hope it helps!! 🙂
Now, everything in this video assumes you’re running on the right amperage and polarity. 6010 and 7018 do NOT run well on AC, especially if you’re new. The 7018 will run, just not as well as it will on DC. 6010 will NOT run period.
If you’re trying this and still having problems, try turning up your amperage some. 1/8″ electrodes run from the 90 amp range (6010/6011) up to 140ish amps (7018) just depending upon a number of other factors. I know this is vague, but if you’re trying to start 1/8″ 6013 or something at like 70 amps, we’ve found your first problem.
Happy welding! 🙂
