i need help been six years since i touched a stick welder

I'm welding 1/2 angle to a 1 inch steel tie rod with 7018 rod
what amperage and voltage should i be on?


1/8" 7018 usually run good on about 125 amps

for 7018 rods, you can convert the diameter of the rod to decimals and use that for your amperage.

.125" = 125 amps

3/32" rod = .094" = 94 amps
