A welding session doesn't go by w/o dipping at least once or twice so, I usually have a sharpened electrode ready and nearby. LOL, the other day, I started a weld and picked-up the spare electrode instead of the filler rod which happened be the same diameter. Gee Wizzz, what is up with this filler rod that won't melt??? Duhhhh!

I did discover that a sharpened 3/16 tungsten makes a wonderful tool for digging crud out of nooks and crannies on a Taft-Peirce surface grinder... but it has to be a 2% lanthanated tungsten. The others won't last very long without balling the tip...





Sorry... welding humor...

They aren't for stirring the puddle? No wonder I have trouble... ;)
