Where to get anthracite in Austin TX

Recommended Posts

I discovered that Tractor Supply only stocks it seasonally and the local Centaur has closed down.  Is there a more consistent source of coal or coke around here?  I currently have some bituminous coal and some coke (~25 lbs. each), but I am trying to set up a forge at a Makerspace and don't want to tap into my own supplies if I don't have to.  I used to see this stuff advertised on Craigslist a lot, but not lately.  I will go to charcoal if I have to, but I would rather use coal.  Propane isn't in the budget (not the fuel, but the forge). 

 

Thanks,

Rob

Feed corn works similar to bituminous or there's always charcoal. 

Have you checked with heating stove suppliers?

rdennett, there are blacksmith groups in the Austin and Houston area. You might search them out. They usually have coal for members (and sometimes non-members).
