Default filler rod

dont be afraid of box lots of stick rods at auctions-at lot of times I see high-alloy nickle maintenance rods mixed in with other stuff-the stick rods can be used with a tig welder if you scrape the outer flux coating off first..slightly bend the rod and the flux sometimes will fracture and peel right off,it doesnt matter for tig use,the center of the rod is what you're after..then scrape the rod with a razor knife and bingo you have a high alloy filler rod..works in a pinch
