Yes this is a old way of welding with steel rod, however you need to use oxy-acetylene, to get the heat, and it's clean, you can cut with oxy-propane but not weld, it's to dirty and you wont get the heat.

Bob used old baling wire years ago to weld cars, we still use the gas to weld them today, mig as well, the gas welds are nice.

Bob welds aluminium with gas too, and tig as well, we still use a stick arc for some jobs like cast.

interesting i will have to get some oxygen for my torch and try it. i'm not so good with my stick welder but better with the oxy/acetylene. did you use any kind of flux with the rod? the brass rod i have has flux on the out side. can you use stick welding rods as brazing rods?

When I have a little time I will do a thread, on how to weld using the oxy/acetylene gas, the kit to use types of regs for the bottles, diy kits, type's rods touch jet size, and gas pressures to use and how to set the flame.

Also dip brazing with brass rod.

However, if you have the oxy/acetylene, the right regs, the right torch and jet you can just weld with steel wire or copper coated steel rods, you don't need any flux at all.

Your stick rods work with your arc welder only, and wont with gas, you could use as a rod with the gas and remove the outer flux and just having the steel rod, but it's better to get gas welding rods, or just steel wire, mig wire will also work but it's really to thin.

I know the type of the brass rod you have with the flux on the out side, it's a high cost way, and you are better off with just brass rod with no flux, and a dip flux in a tin, warm the rod, and dip in the flux, it will stick to the rod, and you can braz just fine at lower cost?
