Yikes that alstate rod is expensive! Still, might be worth a look. Despite a lot of experience with nickle rod, I really hate the stuff...

I would call Esab and tell them what you have and they can give a good recommendation.  The 4-60 while expensive, welds really nice. It has nickle in it, but is totally different than E99 or Ni-Rod.

There are a few suppliers of cast rod..  muggy weld, weld mold another.

The rod will be expensive no matter where you get it...

If you deal locally on a regular basis with the LWS (local welding supply) they might be able to get you a sample..

Last sample I asked for came in a 10lbs carton..

Shop around, call the different suppliers and talk to their technical departments. See what looks best.

Jlp, I would love for my LWS to give me a $500 sample of 10 lbs of 460 lol. While we buy a lot and have a great relationship with them, I haven't seen many samples.  Norton Abrasives on the other hand sent me about $1000 in samples at one point, a ton of Norax and Merit belts and hand stones.  Their rep also gave me this sharpening stone set in nice individual covered wood boxes. Needless to say I use Norton for all my belts and stones now.
