yes 7018 don't like moisture AT ALL.....everytime you open the container you let more in...do this little test ....get yourself a mason jar and take it outside .....whirl it around in the air to get a good sample of the air outside ....then put a tight lid on it and take it inside and put in refrig...see how much moisture condenses on the inside of jar ....7018 should be stored in a oven within 2 hours of the package being open for it to have that stay fresh arc...lol...

Good point Boiler......I guess that is especially true down here in Fla.

I'm not a professional weldor (yet)....and I probably don't use 10 lbs. of 7018 a month.....so I don't see myself keeping a rod oven hot 24 hours a day just for that ! (although Florida Power & Light would probably be more than happy if I did) !

For the time being, I guess I'll just stick to the "quick-dry" method.

(It really works) !

oh i know it works .....but it isn't a good practice...for a hobby welder it is ok to do ....i small rod oven that hold 10# or 50# of rod is cheap to run...or even if you make an oven useing a 40 watt light bulb....hell a 40 watt bulb isn't going to pull that much power

Comon Marko, think outside of the box. Build a solar powered rod oven.
Florida = SUN, plenty of SUN.
As long as the rod remains 10° hotter than the surrounding ambient temperature condensation will be minimal. Build a thermal mass rod oven and set it in the sun.

True for you Franz.......BUT...we also get a lot of rain down here !
