We use Toolstation, as the crow flies it is only a few hundred meters from the workshop and on the same estate as a Skrewfix. We find the staff at Toolstation far more helpful so that is why they get our custom.

All the Super 6 welding rods are of Chinese origin, we can supply them to all members of the forum at £8.00 plus vat, however they are not as good as the Bohler electrodes.

I bought a pack recently and they appear to lay a poorer weld than the higher quality electrodes, I can normally achieve slag peeling behind the rod, no such joy with these rods! You have to beat the sh1t out of the welds to clean slag off, but the welds appear structural.

Used these rods a lot there fine once you get used to them. Used them to weld steel piles for a pier and as far as I know the piers still standing, the only thing I found with them ther a bit more fafing about setting the welder and getting your angles right compared to some more expensive rods.
