Because people have been known to warm up burritos steak and various food items in rod ovens.

what part of oven are you not understanding

you probaly think that it would be strange to take a peice of 1/2 plate and make a pass of two with something like 1/4 7024, to heat your lunch

BTW just out of form please find another place for you butane bottles

Everything around the Burrito warmer should be moved some where else. What type of rod do you intend to store in there? and what temp do you have it set at? Plastic can melt spilling what ever, eventually cardboard can become hot enough to ignite.
Just a lil humor, although it wasn't funny at the time, I was working at a power house where welding rod was a controlled substance, portable rod heaters went with the weldors and rod was checked out by the pound and when turned in rod stubs were counted and what was still in the portable heater weighed.
I wraped a steak that I bbq'd the night before and warmed it up in the portable rod heater for lunch for my fitter and I
well some of the juice leaked into the heater. and you could smell it.
so when I turned everything into QC that evening I just dropped it off and left, not supposed to do that, QC smelled the meat and was instantly pissed.
The next day I wasn't allowed to draw any rod and got fired.

So I ran my first aluminum beads this morning on my inverter welder.

I had a instructor type show me the basics. First off, I didn't clean it very well as I had forgotten to get a SS brush and just used a regular wire brush. Second, the base plate was pretty thick. I had the pedal floored the whole time

AC balance was set about 35-40%, argon about 10. 3/32" green tungsten, balled.

Any ideas what the sand stuff is? This was my first and only bead, I plan to do a lot more to get more of the stacked look. I'm def getting good penetration.

Where's everyone's since of adventure? The oven is well insulated, it's not like the surrounding stuff's getting hot.

mainly 7018 and 7024. 125 deg. (the plastic seems stable)

Nice job. The white sand is aluminum dross, aka: sapphire.

I can't remember seeing an aluminum weld without it. Some folks get all crazy with various pre-weld cleaning procedures, it's like different religions.

Unless the pre-weld surface oxide removal, from both the part and the filler rod, followed by the welding, are both done while the part remains inside an inert gas chamber, I can't see how the dross isn't formed.

Without the inert environment, the dross can be minimized but not completely eliminated by cleaning and wiping the part and filler rod directly before welding.

Use mechanical means to remove the dross after welding, then follow with surface finishing for the desired end result. Or just leave it as is.

250*f is the recommended temp for storing 7018 & 7024 .

I can only guess what a butane canister would do, but I learned when I was young and foolish what a CO2 cartridge would do if you heated one up. We'd toss 'em in folks piles of burning leaves in the fall. POW, the case would rip open with nice razor sharp edges (ie: shrapnel!!!) and fly a couple hundred feet in about .01735 seconds (FAST!). Never occurred to us wise guys that one of 'em might just rip right across our 12 year old throats!

No but a burrito wraped in foil will take about 20 min to warm up, and a small piece of steak/already cooked to med. rare wraped in foil should go about 30 min.
The welding rod can be removed for 30 min without being out of spec. for AWS./ASME. an that will give ya more room for cooking lunch.

Oh an btw anything exposed to a constant heat source will ,over time, deterioate. Even in a refiig. with a 100 watt lamp ( cheap mans rod oven).
Plastic will become brittle and break up paper will char.
Even though the rod oven is insulated it will produce enough heat around it that I would be concerned about combustion of paper and causing propane bottles to explode . But then I tend to be on the cautious side. If you got some really good insurance ................
