Coal where to get it cheap?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I am looking to find some coal. I live in Washington State and I have checked the local farm and feed stores but no one seems to carry it. One store said they could get me 50lb bags of it from northern california for $50 a bag. That seemed kind of high to me. Does anyone know a good source for ferriers/blacksmith coal?

Many thanks,

Harry's Leather doesn't sell coal any more. I wish I'd picked up a couple more tons. Anybody have any feed back on the coal from Central Fuel ? I got a few buckets from Morris Coal as it's my neighbors family business but it was dirty and made a lot of clinkers. Anybody gotten any coal from Star Fuel and Ice in Tacoma ? Before the economy went ..... up , all the coal dealers were getting record prices , a lot of it was going to China, I believe.

I have got some that I would gladly get you fixed up, but unfortunately, way to far away from you. You might want to see if you can look up a site for a US Coal association if you have something like that down there. That is what I had to do to find a supplier. Took some time, but it was worth it. Had to go 700 miles to get it from the mine, but brought home 7 tons. It is fine, but it works well.
