Okay just looking at welding electrodes online, I see you can get mma and also arc electrodes, apart from mma ones being dearer, what’s the difference?
 
for some jobs imo its better to spend bit more than just the cheapest bottom of the range ones....
Bohler Phoenix [6013] are nice general purpose rods to use


has anyone used them Bolher , Fox Sum aamoi ?

Think Bohler are OK for general sticking junk together, but Phoenix Blau weld a lot nicer, more like the old Murex or ESAB (which imho are the best, but hellish dear now) used to be.

I see you can get different types of bohler 6013, Phoenix Blau being the dearest , you any idea the differences in their rods?

The ones I am using at the moment are Bohler Phoenix 6013. They are fine enough, but dont just run or drop the slag as nicely as the old Phoenix Blau in the pink box, which are I believe a superior rod.
