    re:

    rod ovens arent that expensive, and you can buy your rods in cans, which will have an extensive shelf life

    Not sure where you are at but the Government has what is known as DRMO Defence reutilization yards that sell off old equipment that has been taken out of service hop on the web page at www.drmo.gov and take a look at all the goodies. My buddy bought a Duce and a half for $1000.00 and is in the middle of restoring it. I'll have him send me some pic's and forward.

    The low temp will work for the 6010, 6011, and 6013 they have a high celulose sodium flux. 7018 and any of the 18's for that matter are Low Hydrogen flux and as per ANSI should be stored at 250deg to 350deg oven after being removed from the hermedicly sealed container. Also if your rods haven't been broken out of the container and its still sealed sweet leave them in the shed.

    While not the perfect solution I use a Dehumidifying Rod in my fridge.Been there for two plus years now and no problems.You can pick one up from your local gun shop or at Brownell`s.

    that would work great for what I need, I'm storing 100 lbs- 7018 1/8, 6013 1/8, 7014 1/8, 6011 1/8, 6013 3/32, it's too bad I sold my old stove, I'm looking for another, I'd like a refreshment fridge in there, (beer) get thirsty once and a while and don't like tracking stuff in the house, get yelled at LOL
    I'm still looking for a stove, I'll find one sooner or later I'm sure

    Rod Oven

    The heat required for electrode storage is dependent on the SMAW electrode type. To store the low hydrogen electrodes ie XX15,16,18 & 28 "they shall be stored in ovens held at a temperature of at least 250 degrees F"... according to the AWS D1.1 Steel welding code. The cellulose & rutile XX10-11 & 13 & 14 should just be kept dry. If you are storing a 50 pound box of each, opened 3/32, 1/8 and 5/32 electrodes (150 pounds or more) a regular electric (don't use gas!) kitchen stove rescued from the curb or picked up used for less than 50 dollars works fantastic. Build a cabinet setting on top of the stove and use the exhaust heat to keep the cellulose & rutile electrodes dry. The pan drawer provides a handy & dry storage bin for GMAW wire spools and other consumables. If the stove is olive green you might want to use a high temp spray paint to color coordinate the decor in your shop.

    Barstow, I think you'll be fine with a smaller bulb. If your frig seals tight try using a 40 watt and see what that does. We had a 40 watt in ours once and didn't use it for several days and then when we opened it, it was pretty hot in there that's when we backed down to a 25 then we backed down to a 7 and a half watt when we added the charcoal.

    bulb

    We put a little bit of dry charcoal in ours and use a 7 1/2 watt bulb when we're not opening it much and that has worked for years..no moisture problems. If the frig or freezer seals up tight a small bulb will build up heat but to keep them dry it's more about humidity..buy a cheap humidity gauge and that will tell the story better than temperature will. If you have moisture in your rods and want to use something cheap you can use a small electric counter top oven.
    Hope this helps.

    solution to my rod oven fridge

    I decided to keep the heat lamp, and went out to home depot and got a thermastat for a portable forced air heater it has settings from 40-90 degrees, and it's set at 90, and it does shut down and back on again so it does work, thanks for all the ideas and information, it did get up to just over 150 yesterday, I sure feel alot better with the thermastat in there, this was my first post, I've been reading for 4-5 months trying to get ideas, for welding table, headache rack, go kart, etc, I'll send some pics maybe even a video of my super lawn mower pulling wheellies and running 50 miles an hour. THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE

    hi we have an old frig at work as rod storage it has 1- 100wat bulb in it it stays around 110 deg inside with that and seems to work just fine no moisture in the rods and the bulb seems to last 9 mo. or so metal shelves are a must even better if you can make expanded metal holders for the rod so as to help heet evenly hope this helps
