6g pipe weld

If I'm doing a 6g pipe weld with 6010 root on Schedule 80 pipe,heat at about 85-90.,what should my heat setting be for the filler weld with 7018?


3/32 7018 will probably be around the same at 85-90, a 1/8 7018 should run good at around 105-115 amps.

thats a good ball park , of course it depends on your technique and the machine.

good luck with your welding test..
