  • Rod setting chart or app

    Anyone point me in the most comprehensive rod settings chart or iphone app? I picked up a slightly used Hobart 235LX AC/DC.

        IF you care to go into the hobby/trade a bit further, Lincoln deeply subsidizes a number of welding book titles. The "Bible" of arc welding would be the "Procedure Handbook 14th Edition for $25. This is a 750 page doorstop of a book that will answer about any question you may have in a clear and concise manner. If interested, go to the Lincoln site and select "Education" from the top of the page header, a dropdown menu will reveal several topics, but select "James F. Lincoln Foundation", second group down on the following page under "Educational Materials" select "books" and on about the final pages the handbook will show up. Well worth the money, even for a hobbyist.

          Miller has a free iPhone app that covers stick, mig and tig settings.

              I found the Lincoln app to be so poor I uninstalled it. The Miller app fails to take weld position into account so it is not very good compared to my experience and memory. Try them and see. Not hard to find in the app stores

                May, or may not be of any help but I've always started with about 1 ampere per .001" of electrode diameter to start with 7018. This gets derated between 10 & 15 percent for vertical up, overhead, and sometimes horizontal. Some rods such as 6010 really don't fit in that scenario and can be run with much less current attributed to their digging and cleaning action of the flux. I like about 90-100 amps DC electrode positive, (reverse polarity) for 6010 in .125" size. However every machine, every rod, every operator, has a different set of parameters and technique induced into the weld puddle so nothing is carved in stone for the ages. It's all by gaining comfort and the best way to do that is with "time in the saddle" which there is no replacement for. All the printed matter in the world is nothing more than a guide which is just a reference point to start from.
                Thanks for reading/listening.
