    stick keeps sticking!

    I can see and by long arcing I mean striking the arc on the vice and carrying it to the work piece.. But I've been using my left hand now to hold the rod like you guys said and it works great..

      You should dip the rod in rod oil, that'll help. Old timers trick! !!

        Run it at 125 or a bit higher and keep you arc length around an 1/8 inch. Its sticking because you are running it too cold.

            Practice. Lots of it. I get a strip of metal and just strike till I get steady again.
