    Default 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.

    Cool

    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.
