    Re: Size and type of stick

    6013 looks great on AC and it's easy to run makes decent strength welds. 6011 looks ugly but it burns trough rust and oil and make decent strength welds. I made these welds with 1/16" 6013 on DC. But you should have good results on AC. I would use a 3/32" 6013 Lincoln or Hobart.The 1/16" rods are very flimsy and hard to weld with. The 3/32" is stiff enough and wont blow trough 1/8" wall as easy a 6011.

    I would use a 3/16" for all of it. It's not that much more expensive and it won't rust out as fast. It's also a lot stronger. 1/8" is strong enough but it will flex a lot more than 3/16". How far apart are you connecting legs? The part that go's from the handrail to the flat plate.
