I am a shit welder.  But had to fire up my Dad's old stick welder to make a bike stand so I could fix the side stand.

Anyway, did it but had issues.  The Rods were 20 years old 2.5mm in a plastic sleeve they came with.

Should I chuck them?  Would I get a better job with new ones?

Asking for a friend.

The flux on the old rods has probably past its shelf life. I was in the same position with old rods (but not that old) ,  new ones made a big difference.
