          Vertical up on .065! WOW! If you ever master that I’ll give you one of these.


          This has down hill written all over it.

            Yep, 16 ga., downhand. 6013's come in 1/16" and 5/64" rods as well, can be run on DC- or AC to prevent "burn through."

                I think 6013 is one of the hardest rods to run up hill but their was a guy on hobarts forum named flange jockey that really good at 6013 pipe welds. If any one has time thier worth looking up. I agree with everyone else about getting thicker metal.

                  6013

                  does anybody still use 6013, i think the last time i used it was in shop class in high school but mayby im wrong, isnt some sort of 6013 used for under water and also isnt there a very long 6013 for welding roof deck to the barjoist, or is that 6011.

                    E6022 is the deck rod you speak of, and I don't think E6013's will run underwater. They still are used in "light" applications. Good training rod, "easy to use, hard to learn." E-6010's & 6011's "hard to learn, easy to use."

                      I gotta think on that one.....

                      You might try E7018 with electrode positive. What we do is to start flat, then tilt up a little at a time. Just run over the same piece of steel, let it grow! When it gets too hot, dunk it.
                      Just don't dunk a piece you want to use somewhere, it could cause cracks to form.
