What do I set my welder to?
I have a Miller Thunderbolt XL and 7018-1 1/4” electrodes and I have no idea what this needs to be set on

What are you welding?
How THICK is it?
Your welder has electrodes?
Should only have a single electrode.
¼" = .250" electrode = 250 amps
⅛" = .125" electrode = 125 amps
Do you see the pattern?
Your metal better be more than 1/2" thick if you're using a 1/4" electrode and all that current.
P.S. I looked at your welder specs. It's only 225 amps AC, so a 1/4" electrode is already at the maximum size for your welder wide open.
Please explain what you plan on welding.

Then you don't need to be operating it - and please tell me you aren't welding anything important.

1/4" electrodes? 250 amps 1/4=250
. usually 1/8" electrodes or 125 amps 1/8=125 unless you are building the Titanic II
