Here's what I did all day....56k click and be owned

It should be marked on the struction on the welding machine!! in other words crank the amps and feeds high enough until you burn the steel then you know it's too high setting of the amps or not enough feeds!!

It is not on the welder. Since it has become unreadable.

Its not a matter of the settings, the rods have differant properties. E 6013 is the best mulitpurpous rod. It is one of the most user friendly rods and would be good for 1/4 inch.

for what he is doing, tow bar, a 6011 or 6012 would be better because of the penetration. you could always to a pass with 6012 then go over that with 6013 to make it look good.
