What is a 3 phase welder?
LESSON I, PART B 126.96.36.199 Some welders use a three-phase AC supply. Three-phase is simply three sources of AC power as identical voltages brought in by three wires, the three voltages or phases being separated by 120 electrical degrees.

Is MIG welding strong?
The E70s6 bare wire used in MIG and 7018 stick used in stick welders are both equally strong. They have a 70,000 psi tensile strength, which is stronger than most steels that you will work with.
Should I buy a MIG or stick welder?
“MIG is good for fabrication, where the metal is clean, unpainted and the environment is wind-free.” The downfall with stick welders is welding thin metal. Conventional A/C stick welders tend to “burn through” when welding metals thinner than 1⁄8″, while MIG welders can weld metal as thin as 24 gauge (0.0239″).
What is the best welding rod for a beginner?
60 are good beginner’s rods. The main thing with ANY rod is to make sure the rod is 100% dry when you weld. Welding rods have a tendency to absorb humidity from the air, and the wetter they are, the more they stick and splatter. A good dry rod will do some mighty pretty welds, even with ancient welders.
What are 6013 rods good?
The 6013 electrode is best used for light to medium penetration on a thin metal, or sheet metal. The 6011 electrode offers more penetration than the 6013 so you can weld a slightly thicker material.
What is a 6013 rod used for?
The 6013 is a general-purpose welding electrode made of mild steel and can be used in all positions of a welding process. The electrode delivers a smooth and medium penetrating arc. The electrode can be used with small AC power sources having low open-circuit voltage as well.
