ER308L is the rod you need for welding stainless steel. Make sure you have a couple tubes of this on your cart because even if you think all your welding will be mild steel or aluminum, when a stainless project arises, you will want to match the metal with stainless rods for the best quality and longest lasting welds.
How To Select Filler Rod
The thickness of the metal being welded will determine the diameter of the rod.

Match the alloy you’ll be welding to the filler rod. Here are some common applications:
