That depends on the diameter of your rod which depends on the thickness of the material you are welding. An e-7018 1/16" rod start at about 70 amps. A 3/32 rod start about 90 amps. A 1/8 rod start at about 110 amps. These are ball park ranges and you will need to adjust to suit.

What would happen if you use a 6010 welding rod on an AC welding machine?

Using a 6010 welding rod on an AC welding machine can result in less stable arc performance, higher spatter levels, and potential difficulty in controlling the weld pool due to the rod's specific characteristics. It is recommended to use a 6010 welding rod with a DC welding machine for optimal performance.
