Stick rod use for demolition

Have you ever ran across that nasty rusty flange bolt head or nut that is so rusty you can't cut if off properly with a torch or it is rounded off or damaged to the point where it can't be removed with a wrench?

Easy solution...use 6011 or 6010 rods. Just strike an arc on the damaged flange bolt head or nut then long arc it. The head or nut will completely blow off with no damage to the mating surface at all if done right where a cutting torch could possibly damage the mating surface. Try it!
