Upon what did you base your saying "6011 is AC rod"?

Almost everyone I know that builds pipe fences and other general welding uses 6011 1/8 inch rod on DC electrode positive. They do sell an AC version of the 6011, but a normal 6011 rod is for DC.

I based my saying on the numbers for the rod. Google the numbers and you'will see. It is for DC straight or AC NOT DC reverse. At least that's what Lincoln and other manufacturers say. 6010 will do nicely on DC reverse, that's what it's made for. Keith

You're still mistaken. 6011 electrodes are not intended for DC straight polarity. Straight polarity means electrode negative. Almost no electrodes besides 6012 are made to run best on straight polarity (electrode negative). I'm guessing that you think that DC reverse means electrode negative, but it doesn't. Here's the article about it from Lincoln Electric. Read it again.
