Re: Welding rods and ARCS

Original poster: "Alexander Rice by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <alex-at-rices.myip-dot-org>

	when people refer to 'welding rods' 
what they really mean are tungsten rods 
used in TIG welding. this is beacuse it 
has a very high melting point which means 
that in spark gap service they have a low 
wear rate. other materials such as copper 
and brass can be used and work fine. I 
suspect what you are refering to is arc 
welding rods with flux on the outside 
which are not much good for anything 
(except welding with)
