You can either weld them up and drill them out or weld washers to it. What kind of welder do you have its not very thick, most any welder would do it.

Well you can always practice on it. It doesn't have any adjustments at all no amps? Try scraping the end of your rod off before you try to strike an arc. If you already haven't done that.

A few questions about your welder here. Is it an arc or wire feed? Are you cleaning the area to be welded and a spot for the ground to hook to?

Hmmmm? I haven't seen a stick welder without any adjustments on it. Got a model #? Also, what rod are you using? Size?

That's a cute little guy! Several things to check out. How long has it been since the 'thermal protector' light on the switch has shown up? If you don't remember seeing it, the bulb may be burned out and the thermal protector is cutting in too soon keeping it from working. Are the jaws of the electrode holder clean? That could be keeping the circuit open. How do you store the rods? If they are left to draw moisture in the flux coating, they won't work well. You can take some of them and turn the oven on to a low temp. Bake them for 30 minutes or so and see if they work better.

If no improvement after that, I'd say it has reached it life cycle. There is a 15 amp fuse in there somewhere, check it too.
