Even Better Trick for Restarts with E-7018 Electrodes

by Julius C. Blair
(Sandy Hook, Kentucky)

Instead of packing the big rough file around in your back pocket just pop the rod out of the puddle when stopping. The Slag will not melt over top of the electrode it will form a cup which is easily broken with the flick of your thumb (with gloves on dummy) the electrode will start just like one that has never been used.
