    @ rosy

    Sir Rosy I hope you still post and share your pics and tips on stick welding. I just wanted to share and contribute a helpful link on arc welding, the videos are just too cool not to share. Having the close up view of the welder's perspective showing the welding in progress is really a clear way of showing the rod movement and what to look for while doing arc welding.

          Re: Let's practice STICK WELDING, and proper weld bead applications.

          I AM OFFICIALLY POSTING PICS FOR THIS THREAD and START PRACTICING STICK WELDING APPLICATIONS :



          But before I start setting up my welding machine and start sticking those welding electrodes on metal plates, square bars, angle iro bars or other rebars, let's first familiarize ourselves on the different welding electrodes ( rods ) that are commonly used and what I will be using plus also with some important infos on each specific welding electrodes.

          Here I have some basic assortments of welding rods that I usually use during welding sessions.



          These are the E6013s 3/32 rods varieties from NIHONWELD above and BESTWELD below.



          And these are the E6013s 1/8 rods varieties from APOLLO above and WIPCORD below.


          E6013 ELECTRODES ----- This type of welding electrodes can be used with an AC or DC currents. This is what I use for general repairs for light thickness fabrication. It produces a medium penetrating weld but with a superior weld bead appearance. The usual amperage setting for this kind of welding rods is 75 amps to 140 amps.

            Re: Let's practice STICK WELDING, and proper weld bead applications.

            NEXT TYPE OF WELDING ELECTRODES IS THE E6011 :



            These welding electrodes are from WIPWELD.



            And these welding electrodes are from SOUDOWELD.


            E6011 ELECTRODES ----- This type of electrode can be used with an AC or DC currents, but ideal for use on AC welders. It works well on dirty,rusty or painted metals. This can also be used in all kinds of welding positions. Amperage for this type of welding electrode is from 120 amps to 180 amps.

              Re: Let's practice STICK WELDING, and proper weld bead applications.

              AND ANOTHER TYPE OF WELDING ELECTRODES IS THE E7018 : DC TYPE & AC TYPE



              These welding electrodes are the DC type rods



              And these welding electrodes are the AC type rods that I usually use because my welder is only an AC TYPE of welder.


              E7018 ELECTRODES ----- DC TYPE WELDING ELECTRODE-- Designed mainly for DC welders. It produces a high quality welds for mild steel, and ideal for carbon steel where cracking is a concern. This electrode can produce welds of X-RAY quality but with medium penetration. This type of welding rods should be kept in a sealed container or an electrode oven when not in use. Usually this type of welding electrodes are used for hot passes. And the usual amperage setting ranges from 120 amps to 200amps or more.
              AC TYPE WELDING ELECTRODE -- Designed for AC welder operation, preferred for its high purity and crack resistant welds on mild and carbon steels. This rod is also known as a low hydrogen electrode. This kind of electrode must be kept dry at all times but if it gets wet, it must be dried in an ELECTRODE OVEN for at least 30 minutes before use.

                  Re: Let's practice STICK WELDING, and proper weld bead applications.

                  I'll be giving out infos based on the booklet that was given to me by a friend who graduated from TESDA Welding seminars some few months back. This is the booklet distributed to new students learning
                  ARC Welding (SMAW ), just to be very factual, this is where I will get the necessary infos and details needed for easier and better understanding of the subject.


                  Thanks very much for waiting, just in a few more days !!!

                    @rosy

                    are 6013 rods available in different thicknesses here? maybe a tiny rod will help with sheet metal

                      Re: Let's practice STICK WELDING, and proper weld bead applications.

                      Yes bro zepol, E6013 rods are available in different thickness in terms of rod diameter, of course there is the standard 5/32", the 1/8", the 3/32", all these three sizes I have used already.

                      There's also the 5/64", and the 1/16" rods which I haven't used yet but I've seen these sizes shown to me by a Tesda instructor. I think these rods require only very low amperage settings, about 20amp up to 60amps only to be effective when doing sheet metal.

                        Re: Let's practice STICK WELDING, and proper weld bead applications.

                        OK before I go to the meaning of numbers stamped or printed on several welding electrodes, I would like first to touch or discuss the different welding positions needed for welding applications and I firmly believe these positions are worth learning too plus these welding positions are also related to the electrode numbering.



                        FLAT WELDING POSITION : Welding in this position is commonly known as the *1G, a welding application on plate joints or other rebars.,
                        * 1F, a welding application on a V shaped metal joints, similar to an inverted T-joint.,
                        * 1G Pipe, a welding application on a pipe horizontally rolled, its like rotating the pipes being joined to a clockwise or counter cloclwise and depositing the weld at or near the top.

                        This is the most basic and easiest welding position there is.


                        HORIZONTAL WELDING POSITION : Welding in this position is known as the *2G, the plates or bars to be welded are on a standing or vertical position and the weld application is applied horizontally.,
                        *2F, a welding application on a standing or erect position of a T joint for example and still the axis of weld is horizontal.,
                        *2G Pipe, a welding position when the pipes to be joined is in a vertical or standing position, still the weld application is horizontal.

                        This position is slightly harder to do than the flat weld position as gravity is trying to pull the molten metal down towards the ground, but with continues practice, it will still be easy to do.


                        VERTICAL WELDING POSITION : Welding in this position is commonly known as *3G, weld applications here is done in a vertical manner, going up in this position is known as Vertical Up weld, and going down in this position is known as Vertical Down weld. Plates to be joined here is in a vertical position.,
                        *3F, weld application here is the same like the 3G but the difference in the metal joint being welded. It is like a T joint where the metal is in a standing or erect position and weld is applied on the most corner joint of the metal in a vertical up or vertical down manner.,
                        *5G Pipe, a welding position on a pipe that is horizontally fixed, weld application on the joint is from the top going down and overhead, the same on the other side. Note here that the pipe is fixed and shall not or cannot be rotated when welding.

                        This is one position that many encounter difficulty specially the vertical up weld due to gravity compared to the vertical down weld which is easier to control. This kind of application has a limited penetration.


                        OVERHEAD WELDING POSITION : Welding in this position is known as just that, above the head welding applications. But also known or reffered as to the
                        *4G, the plates here to be welded is positioned overhead or above the head and weld application is usually in a horizontal manner.,
                        *4F, this is similar to the T joint literally where in the joint to be welded is overhead or above the head and the weld is applied in the very corner of the metal joint and the axis of weld is horizontal.
                        *6G, this pipe welding position, is an overhead or above the head weld application and the pipe is fixed and cannot be rotated.



                        I will do some graphic renditions of its different position and will post it later for a better visual and easier understanding.

                                I'm pretty sure bro kabasor is very familiar with these various welding positions as he is a graduate of TESDA welding courses, I'm just not sure up to what NC certification he has manage to reach or finish. These graphic illustrations were based from the booklet given to a friend of mine who also graduated from TESDA welding courses. I have just re drawn the graphics in the booklet for a clearer picture and easy understanding, though I positioned some illustrations in different angles.
