Thanks for posting that video again. It's a good one. I had misremembered the results---somehow thought that all three types of rod you tested had turned out stronger when welded AC than DC.
I also watched one you made in 2009 comparing 6011, 6013, 7014, and 7018, all welded DC. At the end of it you announced that you were going to put the test plates on eBay---the proceeds to be directed to the shop and future videos. Did you do that, and, if so, how did it work out?
Thanks again, and happy holidays,
