I will pay for a one ton load of good coal, in bags, on a pallet,shipped by freight truck to Baton Rouge Louisiana. Perhaps Birmingham Ala. might have a source, I do know there is NO coal being mined here.

I just bought a 50# from this guy on Ebay. His ad says he sells up to a ton at a time. I paid $15 for the bag and $20 for shipping to CA. The rate he has posted on this ad is $7.50/bag if you buy 40.

Hope this helps.

Contact me PM for his information

OnR, if you don't mind the drive...There is a place in Conroe, TX that has coal and coke. I have used both and do like it. The place is called C&M farrier supply...IRRC... They are on the east side of Conroe on the Loop. Good people and they also have tools and other items.

We have been buying coal from Buddy Leonard , $35/50lb bag, not great coal, and 60 miles R.T. I want a delivery of a ton ,a better grade of coal , and not lose a day getting it. For this convenience, I will pay premium prices.

I just today talked with Buddy Leonard. He is not going to get another 20 ton load $10,000 (he say) trucked from ? ( still won't say). Buddy, a retired farrior, lost his leg to diabetes, and has been making a living with his sales of bagged coal, and I stayed away from competing with him while he needed the sales. All things change, now I am looking to get a 20 ton load at my shop, I have the space to store it piled on concrete INDOORS, all Louisiana blacksmiths that want coal, in bags, or a bulk share of the heap. Gimme a holla. For right now I ordered a bag from the E-BAY link above, Thanks P.E.

Man I don't know anything about coke , never used it, I would try coke if it is better but I do not want to change my forge, a bottom blast rotating chip breaker in a deep cast iron firepot (centaur) 11" x 14" I tried petroleum coke .. no good..HUGE chunks.. hard to bust , hard to light , and must have constant blast to stay lit. Is coal coke different? Smoke is not an issue I have a 20' - 12" S.S. stack suspended directly over the fire straight up, and we are zoned INDUSTRIAL.

Here in the UK we have what is termed forging coke, and I have also tried other cokes too, a coal fired forge that cokes will stay in longer than any bought in coke I have used.

Yourfirepot may should be OK to use coke in, but if you do not have a constant air blast, it will go out rapidly, not suitable if you have a hand cranked blower,

The coke I use burns hotter than coal that has coked.

If you have good forging coal accessible, I would recommend sticking to that.

Cumberland Elkhorn coal Co. in Louisville KY sells and ships palatalized Sewell seam coal. Last time I was there they had just stretch wrapped a pallet to go to Washington State. NOT cheap coal, but the best I have found.

That is where I buy my coal. Used about 600 lbs doing demos this month and last. They are some really nice people.

Let me know when you receive a large load if coal. I'm in central Mississippi and need a coal source. Let me know what you'll be asking per 100lbs. I have friends interested as well. You can contact me at [email protected]
