Never have counted, but there's quite a bunch in there. Go to Hone Depot and check then out. You won't be disappointed... Hope that helps. Wade.

Can this rod be used in DCEP and DCEN? Or just AC? Because i have a Dc inverter welder so i can use AC

Asked by Mario April 13, 2019

Answers

They will work well and best on dc reverse (electrode positive, negative ground) as long as you provide about 115 or 120 amps.

Can this welding electrode be used with a 70 amp 120 volt welding machine.

Asked by Atmac October 18, 2018

Answers

No. A 3/32 7018 would probably be too much. I would suggest possibly gettin a little bigger machine if you intend to weld much.

Can i order a 7016 welding rod

Actually Lincoln DOES make a 7016 welding rod. Probably won't find it at a Home Depot though. http://www.lincolnelectric.com/en-us/Consumables/Pages/product.aspx?product=Products_Consumable_StickElectrodes-MildandLowAlloySteels-Pipeliner-Pipeliner16P(LincolnElectric)

what kind of stick electrodes i can use for stainless steel tubing?

Asked by subiman August 19, 2016
4
Answers

For stainless steel you should use a stick especially made for aluminum, such as a 308L or a 316L, and there are others. Home depot does not normally carry those but they are obtainable at your local welding shop and while they are much more expensive than these they are not outrageously priced. You need to know what type of stainless you are welding and get a compatible rod. Food grade stainless is typically 304 stainless and 316 stainless is used in caustic or marine applications, these are the most common, although there are many others. You could use 316L on either of those but would not want to use 308L on 316 stainless. Another common stainless is 18-8, which is very closely related to 304 and could be treated the same.

can these be run on a dc welder

It's my favorite rod with DC reverse polarity only. It welds great in all positions including pipe. I have even welded downhill caps on xray pipe.

7018 rod will it absorb moisture

Asked by Tm January 6, 2016
5
Answers

Yes it will absorb moisture over time. Try to keep them in an airtight container and they will be fine for many months or even years. Absorbing moisture is really overblown for the average home welder. If you are welding for certification or for something that is going to be inspected and x-rayed then you need to be very concerned about moisture absorption. But for most of us it isn't a big deal, just keep them in a big ziplock baggie.
