Lamp posts, bicycles, cars, bridges and ships: the modern world as we know it would be unthinkable without arc welding with stick electrodes. Although it is one of the oldest welding processes around, it still produces up to one third of all welded products. And for a very good reason. It is suitable for connecting almost all metals and can even be used for underwater welding.
On our mission, we have learned everything about stick electrode welding from scratch. In eight chapters, I have taught you all you needed to know. From the history of welding - through the working of the process - to the various stick electrodes types, including those used to combat different types of wear.
