Hoe noem je clinkers in het Nederlands?
what blower are you useing
Coke does not seem to be more expensive than Coal, so why do you prefer using your choice of coal?
Outstanding information tyvm!
Waarom niet de gaten open blazen?
Very nice and informative video, wish I had seen it before I made my forge, ended up making it too deep. Have anthracite available here in Tennessee and boy do I wish I could start it with one piece of paper.
With as many times a he said coke, my crack head father walked in and asked of i needed any........
Can you blow less air into it when you are busy with forging or would this be counter productive and make the fire cool down to much? I think those sides you would call them shoulders since you asked :)
Will having a lower or smaller fire pot not create an area where the oxygen is to high to forge in? I have read that this is not good?
Cool video.
Hello Joe nice video!
But I have a question. In my country i can only find a brown coal which is lowest quality for blacksmithing but would it still work? I am new to blacksmithing and I need few answers. Ty
I sometimes get tennis ball sized clinkers in my forge. It sucks when you're cruising along on a long project and you wind up with a bunch of clinkers in the bottom of the Fire pot.
could sub bituminous coal be used for forging or is it not capable of coking??
so your using bituminous coal right.
i am sorry but i could not understand where you got your forge from, could you run that by me agan?

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
