lyuv Posted August 23, 2018 Share Posted August 23, 2018 I have a side blast forge, shaped like a canal (trench?). The air opening is somewhat above the bottom. Obviously, heat an fire rises. So when a piece of coal is BELOW the opening level, it stops burning. Usually, the it's the smaller pieces that sink. The result is that small bits of coal (about rice size) get accumulated in the forge, and fill it all. Air cant get through, and it's just bad. I can sift and trash it, but it's a waste of good (and expensive) coal. Is there a way to avoid or handle this situation? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
