3/8 plate test

When taking the 3/8 plate test for certification what is the best setting to set machine when using 3/32 and 1/8 rods


Believe it or not, Not all rods are the same.

But on the average, I have found that for the 3g and 4g vertical plate test, 85-90 amps is good for 3/32 7018 and 105-115 amps for 1/8 7018
