I am by no means a professional welder, strictly a hobbyist, and to me the 6011 does have it's uses. Primarily for lighter thinner metals, and for tacking pieces together before the final weld. I have also learned by accident that if I do just a short bead with the 6011 to get the metal hot, switch to the 7018 it is much easier to start.

On a second note, my welder is an old Lincoln tombstone that I have converted to full DC by using a set of 600 amp bridge diode rectifiers out of a junked phone company battery charger. I have been told that if I add a capacitor to the output it will make it easier to strike an arc, but cannot find what size capacitor or where to get one, can anyone help?

I have to say what you did to convert your ac Lincoln to dc is amazing.I bought a rope start
liquid AC welder 45 years ago. It was old when I got it. An old miller ac/school welder fell off a truck. Oman 2 cyl. was smashed Person gave me the unit and I attached it to my onan. Bolt pattern the same. I had always wanted a dc welder.Still have it but bought an ever last 200 amp dc. 60% duty cycle

First time I've actually seen "fell off truck" used this way.

Around here there are three forms of arrival

FOR freight on rail

FOB freight on boat

FOT Fell off truck (without damage - or cost)
