    50#

    Uh, big enough to hold 50# of rods

    Seriously, I think they're about 8 x 8 x 14, or something like that, I don't have one handy to measure, but that's somewhat close, as I recall

        It depends on the type of rod and the size of the rod.

                No, because I don't have the "smallest" or the "largest" to measure.
                I do know that both extreems will be obscure rods that aren't commonly used.
                Like those 24" long jet rods that most people will never see, or the 1/16" rods

                But I can give you a few numbers from what I have handy right now. You owe me one because I stopped quoting a job, went out into the cold, and measured several cans of rod ; )

                Esab Atom Arc 7018 cans: 5 3/4" X 5 3/4" X about 14"

                Lincoln 5P+: 3/32"- 5 7/8" X 5 7/8" X 12 5/8"
                1/8" - 5 3/8" X 5 3/8" X 14 5/8"
                5/32"- 5 1/8" X 5 1/8" X 14 5/8" (this is the size for 5mm 8P+
                and 3/16" 70+ as well)

                Lincoln Hippy: 5 1/4" X 5 1/4" X 14 5/8"

                I don't have any Lincoln LoHi cans close by to measure, The longest can I have now is Esab 710P, 7/32": 4 7/8" X 4 7/8" X 18 7/16"

                            metalmeltr, Hi; If your just starting out I wouldn't be buying 50LBs. of any rods, especially any lo-hi ( E7018 ) rods without having a rod oven near by !!

                              50lb can Lincoln Lo-Hy (7018) 1/4" rod 5" x 5" x 18"

                              There may be another 1/8" or so added to these measurements. It am off today sicker than a grass eating dog and it is cold out! These are the only 50lb cans I have not in an oven right now.
