I got an idea.......(and already did a "poor-mans" patent on it).
What do yous guys think of this:
Everyone is always saying that you need to keep stick electrodes dry.....especally 7018's.
How about if I invented an electrode that has a flux coating that changes colors if it picked up too much moisture ?
For instance, if you picked up a 7018 (to weld a sky-scraper together), it should have a white (or very light grey) coating on it. BUT !.....if you noticed that the coating had turned red, you would know not to use it, because it wasn't stored properly !
(If you put it in an oven and dry it out, the coating would go back to white).
You all know that Thomas Edison was my idol, and I think he would be proud of me for coming up with this great idea !
As long as a bunch of color blind weldors don't sue ya for discrimination under ADA, you just might be onto something there Marko.
Hmmmmm, now all I gotta do is claim I'm colorblind.
Has Marko got a lot of money?
