They should work. I like E6011 as an all purpose electrode.

The best all-around welding rod would be the 6011, especially for the DIY'er and hobbyist. With 3/32 and 1/8 size rods on hand, the 6011 will get the majority of your jobs done. It is a fast-fill freeze rod, runs on both ac/dc and handles dirty contaminated jobs better than other electrodes.

You're welcome, if someone hadn't helped me, when I first got a Tombstone welder 30 years ago, I would still be scratching my head.:)

There is a pretty good book on the subject, Practical Welding (Second Edition) by LeRoy A. Scheck & G.C. Edmondson ISBN0-02-829730-X that I would recommend for someone just starting out.
