7018 restart tip

Before you restart simply scrape your finger over the tip of the rod and break the little bit of flux off the end of the rod. This will not create a problem with porosity. The silicone built up on the end will still be there. If u look at the rim of the stick you will see exposed metal ready for a clean easy start.
