I Forge Iron

Need help with cruddy coal.

Recommended Posts

The latest batch of coal we got where I am volunteering seems to have hard coal, (and some rocks) mixed in with the soft coal. How can I get this stuff to work well. After a couple of hours of forging and trying to make coke I had quite a mess. I realize the hard coal won't coke, but I had clinkers like I've never seen before. I pulled out several smallish clinkers, but when I broke the fire down I found three that were the size of grapefruit. Any suggestions on how to make a go of this?

Also, what do you use for coal, and where do you get it? Thanks.
