I find this extremely interesting. I have a very good friend that has welded all his life. Just turned 70. He was a mill wright, fabricator, and general all around local blacksmith. Only man I know that wasn't afraid to weld up the pan on an antique D-4. Long story short, he uses 6011 for nearly everything he does. He does use some special rods for cast, and welds aluminum with both an AC welder and a gas welder. He HATES wire welders. Says they are the downfall of being able to weld. Uses a DC welder on a very limited basis. When he was able, I would have put him up against anyone in a welding contest. Now days he has skin cancer so bad, he can't leave his house.

Him & I would get along good. I have 2 sons welding but I still outdo them with the stick & 6011. I am 71 & been at it since high school. Only time I used wire feed was to build up crankshafts before grinding. I weld 16 ga with 1/8 6011 at 80 to 90 amps. Kids can't see how I do it without burning it full of holes. I don't know how much longer as my eyes are getting weaker. May have to start wearing glasses.
