I wanted an electrode larger than 1/16″ but smaller than 3/16″ for use with a 80 amp inverter welder. Using the welder with a generator as a power source seemed to reduce the available amperage to the point where 3/16″ rods would not hold an arc. These slightly smaller electrodes allowed me to make repairs where no electricity was available. 1/16″ electrodes also worked but I could only get about an inch-long bead before changing rods. On thick materials, I made a root pass with the 1/16″ 6011 to get some decent penetration following up with the 5/64″ 6013 for a nice looking and sturdy weld.
look great pos but i always only need a couple of these, wish they packed them 10 per bag.

I haven’t used them yet (this comming weekend), but i have found that 5/64ths are much more controllable than 1/16ths with a 120v welder. 6013 rod is 6013 rod
I ordered these to use with a Campbell Hausfeld 115v stick welder and they work great on the high amp setting. The lower amp setting is for 1/16 rods. I’ve been welding 1/8″ scrap with these with no problems. These produce good clean welds with a little practice.

I’m just an entry level welder. it seems to flow well once you get it flowing. I am still trying to learn how to get it flowing tho!
Works as well as any rod. My 100 amp 125 volt AC welder has no problem “pushing” this rod.

Works better than the 6013 I pick up at harbor freight
Hot Max 5/64 inch E6013 Welding Rods
I received this item fairly quick. I used it with a small welding inverter and the welding rods were great. The welds do penetrate good on small thickness steel. But they do leave a little slag.
Hot Max is a trusted name!
Tried these out at 75 Amps . worked great…
smooth and true
Easy to spark and hold true. Getting good line welds that would make my VoTech school teacher proud. Low slag and controlled bead withour burning through, even on 22ga. sheet metal. Very pleased with these rods.
