Yep I do most of my welding with an AC machine but then that is what a Lincoln buzz box is. The DC machine I have burns a gal and hour and is a pull start machine so hard to start and in the winter impossible to start unless your built like the hulk which I am not

Yes , in that case of hard starting , I can undestand why you have settled with AC . Did you ever try finding a DC welder that someone is selling cheap ? I've seen some nice ones on Craigs List . If (and I Pray it never does) mine would bite the dust , I think I'd do most anything to buy another one . I once worked plowing a widow ladies driveway & she showed me her deceased hubbies huge commercial AC Lincoln welder very cheap . But being only AC , I turned it down . Maybe Santa will bless you with a small DC machine . Merry CHRISTmas to you Old . God bles, Ken

Just to confound everyone.

I weld almost exclusively with 6013 rods on AC welders.

No problems with weld failure after about 20 years of doing it this way.

I have even welded cast iron exhaust manifolds with 6013.

Not real pretty and quite tedious but worked fine and never fell apart.

Over the years I have messed with a lot of Mig and Tig welding plus the AC buzz box and the portable DC one. I have a flux core mig unit right now but do not use it much. So far really never have needed a DC welder but if one did come up cheap enough I might buy it
