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?

John, 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
