Yeah - it will drip on you, ha. That was the rod that they started us on in the Jr. college adult ed welding classes. You can almost lay it down and drag it. Good for someone who has never had a stinger in their hand. Our instructer called them (7014 and 7024) production rods, for use on a prepared joint. Big heavy slag that would pop off real clean. Vertical up? I know I'd fail at that. . .

I used to think I was a decent welder, but I disappoint myself a lot as I get older.

You can leave out the "almost". You not only can drag it, it might be that you are supposed to. One of the welding instructors at the local community college once showed me a data sheet which either came with the rod or had been issued by the manufacturer for one brand of 7018 we used. It stated that the rod was meant to be dragged (drug?) and that it wouldn't meet some code if it wasn't. I don't remember the specifics any better than that, but I might have kept the document. It's Xmas eve morning, though, so I probably won't get around to looking for it today. My point is that if 7018 is ever meant to be dragged, it seems like you could count on 7014 and 7024 being so.
