  • Electrode, electrode size, amperage and material thickness. (Arc)

    Ok, semi quick question...

    Is there a chart showing the electrode & electrode size, plus the amperage range, and the recommended range of material to be welded.

    So, if I have a 3/32" 7018-1 I should be running 70-90 amps (give or take) what plate thicknesses are recommended?

    Is there a way to calculate this?

    Thanks, HW

    Sorta like this but with the reccomended thickness of plate for each. http://weldinggeniusbar.com/wp-conte...3/07/john4.jpg

      Ok thanks.

      Certainly helpful if your not welding 'exotic' metals.

          Call Miller at 866-931-9732. Order part number 043125. It'll cost you all of $4, and you'll get "slide chart" calculators for MIG, Stick and TIG. If you prefer metric dimensions, order part number 211600 instead. Or get 'em both if you want.

          Go here for some good pictures of what you'll get: http://store.aglevtech.net/timigsmmica.html

          Don't order from that site, though. Miller will send it all to you for $4 including S&H.

            a word of caution

            The electrode amp settings are close. The electrode size to plate thickness suggestion is for max deposition rate per minute or hour. Miller or Lincoln may even suggest running 5/32" rods on 1/8" plate! Plenty of penetration alright (and warpage). Maybe even 1/4" rods for 1/2" plate.
