  • Hobart weld-it stick electrodes

    Hey you Hobart guys!
    I noticed the other day at Harbor Freight that they are selling weld-it brand rods in a 1/16" size for E6011, E6013, E7014, and E7018. I've seen the small sizes for the E6013 from other vendors as well, but was suprised to find the other types available in a 1/16" dia. especially when the hobart website for 'weld-it' as well as hobart filler materials doesn't indicate those sizes. Are these specially packaged for retail shops? They appeared to be only available in 1 lb. packages. Any other place to get these sizes?

    thanks,

    1/16" rods

    Haven't looked for them lately but I bought a large box of 1/16" 7014 years ago. Don't remember the size of the box, but I have a shoebox full still. They aren't easy to weld with.

        Rock,
        The boxes I saw at H.F. were boxes with hobart and weld-it stamped on them. So you're sure that hobart doesn't make any
        1/16" in e7014,6011, or 6013? I know that you guys stilll make the 1/16 for e6013.

        I'll check with the institute, but these boxes were clearly a hobart product.
