Cool 1000 amp stick welding

The welding rod is 4' long and weighs 18 lbs. The stinger ( welding rod holder ) weighs 40 lbs and they weld while standing on a ladder.

For the folks who don't weld, an arc welder at home or at the shop would be set at about 90 amps for a 3/32" welding rod and around 125 amps for a 1/8" rod.

This rod , without the flux is about the size of a dime.

One of our customers (SLB) does some large electrode welding but not that big. My mechanics tell me it is way louder than they expected.

Surprised it didn't just blow a hole in that 1" plate.


Obviously this was just a demonstration of the electrode, not of an application that would actually call for it.
