The key was to move the ground cable closer to the area your cutting. US Forge has produced a Arc Welder which to my mind has met all of my needs. Great product I need about three more. I'm running an US Forge 160 on about 45 amps and these rods run great. The amperage markings go by every twenty amps.

US Forge Final Thoughts
Very easy to find proper welding temp. They're durable, dependable, and work well. It has a plastic cover to protect the display from splatter and dirt. I needed to hand carry in my luggage. It is very light weight and portable.
