  • welding rods

    Does anyone sell a variety pack of welding rods? It would be nice to know what works best for me. (stick welder)

    Maybe a local farm store has smaller packs. Our local welding supply only has 10 lb and up...Bob

      I've never seen that but then I haven't needed or looked for it, maybe there are smaller packs like 5lbs you could buy of the different rods you're looking for...
      I presume you've been to the online stores to look?

        Tried sending you a PM but couldn't get it to work. Will send you a note on this as soon as the Miller web guys get my PM working again.

          Tractor Supply sells 5# & 10# boxes plus I think they have smaller packs. The smaller you go the pricier they get. What kind of machine do you have, ac and dc or just ac? What kind of welding will you do, old rusty metal or clean metal? Steel, aluminum, stainless? We can can point you to what rods work best for your situation.

            1/8 & 3/32” 7018 and 6011 (or 6010 if you have DC machine) and you’ll be up and running.

                  This ... I might throw in some 5/32" 6010 (or 6011 if you have an AC machine)...

                      Tractor supply has 1lb packs of some smaller rods like 1/16; if you’re welding beer cans together. :-)
