3/16" Cut Rod Metal Working Maintenance Alloy Electrode, 25 lb Box

Harris Cut Rod is suitable for cutting and piercing any metal. Cut rod cuts all metals and alloys including stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum, copper, brass and bronze. It is used for piercing holes, enlarging openings, trimming metals, removing frozen bolts, removing gates and risers, etc. The special core wire in cut rod features a heat resistant coating that is nonconductive. It uses AC or DC reverse polarity on regular welding machines. It creates a better blasting action with quicker cutting. This enables you to operate the electrode at maximum amperage and is economical since it saves time, fuel and labor. When used for cutting, strike an arc at the point where cutting is to begin. Once the arc is struck, maintain the electrode in contact with the work. Quickly remove the electrode once the hole is pierced. To enlarge the hole, move the electrode in a circular motion. The special core wire in Cut Rod has a heat resistant coating which is nonconductive This enables you to operate the electrode at higher amps It creates a greater blasting action with faster cutting Economy is achieved by saving time, fuel and laborApplications: Cutting and piercing any metal Piercing holes, enlarging openings, trimming metals, removing frozen bolts, removing gates and risers Use AC or DC reverse polarity on regular welding machines For cutting, strike an arc at the point where cutting is to begin Once the arc is struck, maintain the electrode in contact with the work Use a continuous up and down "saw like" motion. Do not maintain an arc gap To pierce holes, hold the electrode vertical to the work. Once the arc is struck, push the electrode through the metal Rapidly remove the electrode once the hole is pierced. To enlarge the hole, move the electrode in a circular motion
