  • Amperage

    Do any of you know what would be the best amperage for welding 1/8'' thick square tubing? I'm using a stick welder.

                A E7018 rod would work just as well, A E7024 are generally used for thicker materials and fillet welds

                    Beautiful results? Im sure that 7024 does nice, but in the right hands 7018 can be almost perfect. I welded these with 1/8 MG 7018.

                        diddo... that looks better than 99% of all my welds [the rare 1% of the time i get one that looks like that, and always it ends up being on the back side of a bolt on piece so it is never seen ]

                          That's a nice looking weld, Trevwelder.
