  • Ac or dc on legend welder

    Hello everyone. I have a legend engine welder. It has ac and dc capabilities. I have always used dc and it very smooth. When should u switch between the 2. Is there a chart somewhere detailing which rods to use on each type. Tia

    For stick welding I just prefer DC if I have the rods needed for the application. I have used AC 7018 rod for some magnetized oil field pipe with good results. DC just wandered around and blew holes in it. Lots of things have been stuck together with a 225 Lincoln cracker box that is AC only.

    Here's a chart.
