Tip for cutting steel with an arc welder

I heard that you can cut steel with an arc welder by first dipping the electrode into water and making it wet. Is that true?

Cant wait to try it. Not sure if it has to be done with direct current though.

Also heard that you can cut steel with a carbon rod.

Cant wait to try.

I made an arc welder out of 2 micro wave oven transformers. It works great.

Anyways this is not much of a tip ha ha but i totally agree with you about stick welding being the best. I have tried a lot of different types of welding and this one is the most simple.
