    Yowzers!

    Don't know if this has been posted before, but holy cow! I don't know that I'd try this.

    That ain't a weld puddle, that's a weld pond!

    Maybe one of those YouTube guys that weld in t-shirt,
    shorts and flip flops could demonstrate.

    I have one in my office. There used to be someone selling them on Ebay. $22 for the rod and $25 for shipping.

    I don't see them there anymore though.

    Lol! It'd almost be worth it to have one of those rods, just as a "conversation" piece!

    It is! They made a pretty cool gift for two really good friends (Welding Engineer and a fellow Inspector) as well.

    It also comes in handy with the majority of the famous welders that have "Seen it All".

    I wish I had kept one of the same size rods we used to repair the forging dies at Kaiser Aluminum . We had 4, 400 amp machines hooked up in series to give 1200 total. Operator wore a molders reflective suit and operated a pantograph that had a 6 foot reach. It was very impressive. Jim

    4 - 400 Amp machines hooked in series gets you 400 Amps. 4 - 400 Amp Machines in parallel gets you 1600A.

    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.
