Best answer

First of all, AISI 430 is none hardening erratic stainless - primarily due to low 0.12% Carbon.   

AISI 1020 is low carbon structural steel, equivalent to say an S335J2H (a European number)

Now, you can use E/ER 308 electrode for filler material. 

Will check my cook books and add more later.
