corwall coal scource?

PostBy: jimbo On: Fri Nov 27, 2009 8:15 pm

Does any one know where cornwall coal and supply gets coal from?
What vein does it come from? Got 6 bags from Coal and Craft in Ephratah NY to try and see how it compares to Kimmels. My furnace loves the Kimmels for some reason and it seems to work the best of any coal I have found yet.
Does any one know how good this coal is?

To state the obvious, they don't like to say.

But they sure know their business, and I've never had a problem with the rice they've delivered in 3+ seasons I've been here.

You guys all know that most all supplied coal is a blend. Kinda like the old dairy that produced and delivered it's own dairy products, Not much anymore, most everything is blended together by some crafty individuals who are very good at what they do. It isn't too hard to just be happy, and not question every damned thing we do or receive. By the way, Kimmels have no mines anymore, it's all trucked in and blended, washed, bagged.....and out their door to your door....

They all burn quite well, and each may be slightly different in ash or burn characteristics, no big deal. Quality, quantity, price.....that's nice!!!
We all go to the pharmacy and buy generics....same kinda deal.
MOST businessmen are fair and honest, so please support them all, and enjoy affordable warmth.

23 here at 5:45......gotta love those stokers.....and hand feds too!

The outdoor wood boilers will be puking out some nasty smells and laying down a blanket of smoke that will fill the valleys all the way to the coast......GGGGRRRRRRRrrrrrr! Most of them say: It all burns, the greener the better!! Wonder how many know the number of BTU's required to just dry the wood IN the boiler before it will burn.
40% efficiency.......and it gets a tax credit, too!!!!!?????? Is there a wood boiler site? I wonder how they record the amount burned each day/week/month? .....it was a great year Gomer, we only used thirteen picker loads to get through! Burned 200 tires too!!!!!! 6 tons of trash........ : :evil: :eek2: :doh: :bang: bop2 :down: :rofl: :rofl:

Good morning, Cornwall is pulling coal from Jeddo, they go thru town on the way to their yard in N.Y. I was at Kimmel's in july on this year and spent the morning with the VP and went to one of the mines.They were pulling coal from 3 places and taking it to Medowbrook (which Kimmel's owns) then to the bagging plant a few mi. down the road.

That would explain my varying experiences with Kimmels. Some years it burned good, others (like last yr) I went thru unbelievable amounts of coal & was never able (in the 4 seasons I burned it) to achieve a 24 hour burn. Varying amounts of trash in the bags too. The first year I found a mudball about the size of a cantaloupe. :shock:

I've been buying my coal from Cornwall Coal for a couple winters now. The owner is very knowledgable. I've always had very good coal from him in the pea and nut sizes. I just switched to stove coal just a couple months ago and he was trying hard to not sell it to me. But stove coal works best in my current stove. However, the stove coal I got is very dusty and high in sulphur. I can stand outside my house when I stoke the fire and smell the sulphur coming off in a big way. He must not sell a lot of stove coal and this batch was below his standards. I think that may be why he didn't really want to sell it to me... It does work although I use more of it than I'd like.

I think those guys are really straight shooters and good buisness folk. Even though I don't know where they get their coal, their smaller sizes are good quality.

Surface mines not Underground mines They opened Williamstown # 1 in 06 and closed it in 08 They always got there coal from and threw Medowbrook breaker being it is the closest breaker to the Surface mines & Refuse banks they get there coal from once it is processed at the breaker then it goes to the bagging plant they also bag Bit coal from W.V. in the same plant

Good memory, J.C. Guess I got that idea because I'd seen a Reading sign at their place. It sure wasn't because they told me!

But I understand, actually. If I know where it comes from, I can probably find out what they're paying and, thus, how much they're making on what they're delivering to me. But I don't have their expertise, nor do I have to maintain their fleet, including the hi-lift truck I need to get it into my bin. Or their stock inventory.

I just paid $226/ton for 2 tons of rice, delivered into my bin. Not bad, all things considered.

Just thought I would drop line in here.

We use a lot of coal and I bought a trailer load (22 tons+) three years ago from Cornwall. Steve is knowledgeable and the coal is clean and burns hot. About to load in another 22 tons now as I have rebuilt my bunker. Is there slightly better/worse? Tough to tell but of one thing I am certain, if I had not switched to coal from oil I would now be in the Salvation Army soup kitchen. As it is we are doing quite nicely thank you and am expanding my little business. Now from everything I have learned from you guys if oil was free I would still burn coal. There is just something better about it but it took a while to set it up right. Go explain that one to a stranger. Used to try to explain to non coalies but all I get is strange looks. Now I just shut up and get set for the next season and of course learn from this board. :partyhat:
