I see a lot of people talking about needing to dry out welding rods and such. Also many types of Loctite and paint you do not want to freeze.
I have used an old refrigerator with a 60 watt light bulb in the bottom of it for over 30 years. The bulb will keep it warm but not too hot year round. In the summer I put in a 40 watt bulb. I usually move the paint and such out but in the winter I just put it all in there.
I have boughten welding rods at sales that where soaking wet. Just put them just above the light bulb and forget them for a few weeks. They usually will dry out and be fine. Some times the flux will flake off but most of the time they will not.
This is not some thing revolutionary to do. Just any old frig and light fixture. The frig has lots of shelves and draws to store things. I have two that are full right now. They both where free.
I have never had to preheat any of the welding rods I use after storing them this way. I used to use a lot of 7018 and 10018 rods. I always stored them this way. They always worked fine and pasted inspection.
