WELDING TIP OF THE DAY : Amperage for Stick (SMAW) Welding
Tuesday Mar 19, 2019 - 26/52
The Old Welder by Frank Tabor A general rule of thumb for the maximum AC amperage for welding electrodes is the decimal inch diameter of the rod times 1000. Example a 3/16" = .1875, the maximum amperage is 180, a 1/8" rod = .125 and the amperage is 125. Minimum settings are half the maximum. If you know your deicimal equalivants you know your amprage. - guru
