No I haven't tried it. Iv removed a bunch of it though. Then I do it right and weld the dang pins in em....or weld it onto the barrel permanently. I have all sorts of crazy ideas as well. Some work some don't.

I always enjoy learning from other peoples mistakes. It is much cheaper that way.

If you don't want to remove it have a GOOD TIG welder put it on there.

I wouldn't try that, i have used plenty of coat hanger when we don't have any rods. You have to heat the metal almost until it starts to puddle like with gas rods.. I would not want to do that with any barrel I liked. For all the time and effort of trying a do it yourself and chancing ruining your barrel just have someone tig it like marlin suggested

A good little Lincoln 110 can be bought for cheaper than a decent barrel usually

Not sure about how many years ago you are refering, I have been using them for aver 20 years and seem about the same to me.. They always seemed to me like an inbetween of a brazing rod and welding rod.. You dont get nearly the penetration that you do with a true welding rod.

The only thing they are good for welding wise is doing exhaust work w oxy-fuel
