Stick welding the cover pass on a 2 inch 6g pipe test. Using excalibur 7018 rods at around 90-95 amps, We cover a few tips for stick welding the cover pass as well as a brief summary of parts 1 and 2 where we did the root pass and hot pass with tig welding ,
I used an Everlast 160 sth for all the welding on this 6g welding test.
sth stands for stick, tig, and high frequency start….this little welding machine is a very affordable and capable tig inverter that can be used with either foot pedal amperage control , or torch switch.
I used the torch switch for this video but I had a chance to play around with the foot pedal for some other joints.
Lincoln excalibur 7018s are nice. the slag seems to come off more easily than some other rods I have tried….and the excalibur rod has a slightly heavier flux coating that deposits more metal.
This machine compares to other machines like the lincoln v155 and miller maxstar 150 models. Having high freq start is a huge deal because a no touch start is important on jobs like 4130 tubing.
