Some things I discovered in my wood stove adventure:

- Welding is 30% art, 10% science, and 60% what kind of welder you own

- Ventilation, Ventilation, Ventilation

- All welding electrodes/rods are not made equal, but if all else is equal, 6011 is good enough

- If your welding electrode didn't stay dry, it's junk

- Cast iron > Steel for heat retention, but sometimes, worse is better for other reasons


Just found this again. It's the single most helpful video on welding that I used while experimenting on my wood stove design

No frills, not filler (except welds), all direct information
