So what you are saying is that if I am welding a piece of 1/2 inch metal the rod should be a 1/2 inch diameter ?

What you say about 1/8 is usually used except in fab shops is bogus. Doesn't make sense.

As a retired certified welder I find the info you are stating is not correct.

Run a 6010 pass on it, then cover with 7018. Just saying.

if welding in ship mfg. or similar fab. they match rod with mat. hardly seen any more except for repair. keeps from multiple passes.
fab shops usually have a range of electrode to match jobs.
dont know what you did. i sold electrode to all facets of welding repair ind.
why 6010 as root pass?

He said he has a buss box. Is it AC/DC? Maybe just AC and he doesn't sound like he's done a lot of welding. 6010 is makes a good root pass if he has a DC welder. If only AC he needs 6011. 7018 is normally DC but you can get 7018 for AC. If he is a beginner he will not know how to whip quick-freeze rod to do a proper root anyway. For a beginner 7014 will work much easier and he will learn with experience. Good rods for beginners are 6011 and 7014. A single bevel will give him enough to fill and it will work just fine. 1/8 rod is a good size to learn with.
