  1. Thank you for explaining that to me. Now I will have a much better idea of what to do and what is being talked about. I am pretty sure I will be doing charcoal I have read multiple post on how to make it all ready.
  2. Hello everyone out there. I am from Indian River Michigan. I have been reading a bunch of the post, and trying to figure everything out. Maybe I just have not found the right post yet to answer my question. Or I am just so new idk what I am talking about yet. I am trying to figure out the difference between the hard fuels used in a forge. I am looking at building a variation of a JABOD forge and trying to go cheap as possible, but trying to figure out fuel now. I think I know two of them. Charcoal: made from burning/drying out wood? Coal: is dug up from the earth Coke: I have no idea. Is this something you can make? BBQ coal: something you don’t want to use for forging. Why is that? if there is a post out there that explains all this all ready I have not found it and I will be more than happy to go there and read it all just need to know we’re it is at.
  3. Thank you everyone for helping to point me in the right direction. I will definitely check out more post on jabod. And since I forgot my location earlier indian river Michigan
  4. Hello everyone out there. I have been looking around this site on and off for a while now. I am relatively new to forging and trying to get a forge up and going. I tried a coffee can forge with a Walmart special propane torch. It does not get hot enough to even get the metal workable. So I have decided to make a coal forge out of a old propane grill. I have been seeing a lot about JABOD forges and I am thinking that is the way I wan to go. What should I know about making one. And any other suggestions or tips I should know. Any help is greatly appreciative. I am mainly looking to make knives. May move up to bigger stuff later.
