Is coal readily available or does it just depend on where you live? I would like to make a coal forge but I don't know where to get coal. If I can't find any I will copy your design if it's ok.

I drive 2 hours one way to get my coal. It's not really my design. Build away.

Hi,
I've built a few, but prefer a gas/air mix! (air is free!)

You do have to have power in the shop for the air which some people dont!

I also take Satinite and cover the KWool!

If I am forge welding I make a pan for the bottom to protect the flux from "melting" the K Wool!

There is a LOT of info on these and I would urge anyone new to Blacksmithing to join their local ABANA Chapter for their State, and go to a few meetings!!!

Nice forge.

I have seen a gas fired forge that was built using a rigid board type insulation (Vermiculite board?). The forge was built as a rectangle out of 10 gage sheet stock and lined with the rigid board, but with a castable refractory floor. The builder told me he preferred the rigid board because he could work it with a woodworking saw and it was a bit more durable than the ceramic wool.

Now to find the rigid insulation.....
