Looking for a coal source in SE Nebraska

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I am new to the area and I'm looking for a source for good coal.
Also, I was just curious if there are any smiths anywhere near Crab Orchard NE?
Thanks!

Your first name ain't Josh, is it? (thought JMartin mighta been an alias).

If not, I need to hook you up with another new arival to SE NE that's just getting started.


Mean while, check here:

Prairie Blacksmiths Association : ABANA (Artist Blacksmith Association of North America) affiliate.

Ask around this forum for "Irnsrgn"; he lists his location as "Extreme Southeast, Nebraska" and as member of the above organization.

Josh,

Sid is THE place for coal in Nebraska. You should also look to join the PBA.(Prarie Blacksmith Association). They are having a hammer-in just down the road from you in Filley Ne. on April 18th and 19th. More info can be found here: Prairie Blacksmiths Association : ABANA (Artist Blacksmith Association of North America) affiliate. .
Harlan is a good guy and you'll have fun there.

Have fun,

John

P.S. I second the notion of talking to Jr.(Irnsrgn). He lives in Falls City, and is very busy, but what he could teach you will take years off of the learning curve.
