    Default What's up with this electrode?

    Some guy took 3 inches of stainless rod, sharpened a point on it, replaced the tungsten in a guy's TIG gun. Guy came back from lunch. That stainless sure looked like tungsten, but didn't weld like it.

    Smile Running stainless mig wire w/o gas on steel

    I got a great deal on my first mig welder because the guy that purchased it new had stainless wire inside and no gas. He was trying to weld mild steel and couldn't get anything to stick. He sold it to a pawn shop that a friend of mine owned. My friend called me about a great deal. I went right down and picked this thing up for less than half the price the guy paid two weeks earlier. That guy ended up going to a different welding supplier and bought a much larger welder than he ever needed and paid a lot more. I guess over all we all ended up getting what we wanted. The guy got a monster welder, The pawn shop got some money and I got started in welding. The only problem as my wife says it started an addiction.

    Check to make sure you didn't pick up a 308 stainless steel filler rod by mistake.
