STICK Calculator

What material are you welding?

 

What electrode are you using?

 
All suggested settings are approximate.
Welds should be tested to comply to your specifications.

Suggested Amperage Range:

Use less amps on thin metal; more amps on thick metal.
Polarity:

DCEP: DC, Electrode Positive (reverse polarity) has the most weld penetration

AC: medium weld penetration (can be more spatter)

DCEN: DC, Electrode Negative (straight polarity) has the least weld penetration

Penetration:

Position of Weld:
