Oscar,
Those are the exact same thing. Welding Material Sales is the parent company that private labels fillers for a lot of companies and sells their own branded fillers, Blue Demon. They also do the private labeling for Weldporn's fillers. I looked into having them do my private labeling but a lot of their fillers are made overseas and I wanted US if I could. Some fillers, like Ti, are mostly made over the pond and can't be helped but I will take what US products I can. I am not saying those are junk at all, just letting you know where they actually come from.

I read that and thought "that can't be right..."

Did the math...yeah, it's right - holy crap is all I can say.

That much additional flux has to affect something.

I said the same thing. So I checked the math several times as well.

That one always amazes me. I did some calculations to see how much bigger of a pipe I needed to run for the flow I needed. Thought I was going to have to go from 3/4 inch up to like 3 inch. But only needed 1-1/2 inch.
I have more questions than answers
