tip for less slag on the end of 7018 rod after weld

whenever you want to keep using the same 7018 rod, as soon as you pull out of the puddle, give the stinger a quick flick of the wrist. this will knock most of the molten slag off of the end of the rod for quicker restarts. all i do is simply drag the end of the rod and the ark strikes and i continue making welds.
