    E6013 - 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.

    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 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.

    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."
