After much delay (new baby and all), I finally got a chance to start
working on several welding projects that have been waiting for quite
After trying a couple of rod types, I found out why I used to like 7018
rod so much (6011 makes a nasty looking weld, 6013 hardly penetrates -
I ended up using 7014, but I prefer reverse DC...). The problem is that
the school had one of those funky electrode drying ovens to keep the
7018 fresh, and...
My question is: how can the "small" guy keep this stuff dry? I was
thinking maybe a toaster oven or something.. What do the rest of
you do about this? Are those funky gasketed plastic tubes good enough?
Any input would be greatly appreciated
