Default Help Identify Welding 590 Rod

Greetings,

Does anyone know where I might find some info on this rod?
It is Eureka, Type 590 Alloy, size 1/8 welding electrode. Made by Welding Equipment & Supply Co, 5225 E Davison Detroit Mi 48212.
Packed in a cardboard box. Seems really old. Probably almost as old as I am

I found it while cleaning out a shelf at work, and am just trying to figure out what I can use it for! So far, I have not been able to come up with any thing with a general internet search, but thought someone here might have some old books, or know where I might be able to find some info on this rod.

Thank you,

Chris,
Thank you for that link! I think that was the ticket! The rod is not what I was hoping for, but might use it somewhere.

Might be just the right rod for welding on a cutting edge on a bucket where you have two very different carbon content metals.
