    OK.... guess I was just trying to look at it in a more complicated light than I needed to... and could not visualize it... much more of a PT Barnum than Sandia Labs/Los Alamos deal....(having been a nerdy type for too many years sometimes I overcomplicate the simple stuff in my mind)
    Thanks

    basicly the guy extracted a bolt with out damaging the threads. the other the flux melted a little later than the filler so the filler didn't groundout and stick if you let go.

    Forgot about the bolt trick. 5/8 bolt and 3/32 7018 works real good for that. Probably other types of rod also. But I've only tried it with the lo-high revpol

    Thought everybody has seen that, or at least tried it. First saw this about 40yrs ago with a old Forney buzz box ac and 6012 rod. Done it myself with ac rod, 5p plus & lo-high 7018. Was a old sales trick some people used to sell mach. & rod. Took some long 7/32 lo-high once on a big old piece of plate twisted my whip in a circle and tried to make complete circles with it running all by itself.Never did quite get it without helping it. O well fun& games revpol

    joe,

    Certanium makes some really high tech rods and they are rather pricey. I have seen many demonstrated, but none like those you describe. Sounds neat!

    THE OTHER DAY A WELDING SUPPLY REP CAME TO OUR AREA AND SHOWED US SOMETHINGS. THE FIRST HE SETUP A BOLT WITH A NUT IN THE VISE. PUT A SECOND NUT ON TOP. PUT THE ROD DOWN THE HOLE WELDED ON THE BOLT, BUILT IT UP AND WELD THE BOLT TO THE TOP NUT. AFTER IT COOLED PUT A WRENCH ON THE WELDED NUT WIGGLED IT, COULD HEAR THE FLUX CRUNCH, AND TURNED THE BOLT UP THOUGH THE NUT IN THE VISE. SECOND, HE STRUCK AN ARC AND PROPPED UP THE ELECTRODE HOLDER AND IT FINSHED THE BEAD BY IT SELF. BOTH OF THE RODS HAD GOOFY NAMES SO YOU WOULD REMEMBER, BUT I FORGOT. AFTER ALL THAT MY QUESTION IS ARE THESE ROD ALREADY AROUND OR DO THESE GUYS HAVE SOMETHING NEW?
Working...
