Thanks, but I've got good sources of bituminous coal for blacksmithing. What I don't know is where to get coke. The kid wants specifically coke, he's got coal... what can I say? I personally prefer using good bituminous for smithing rather than coke - I've used both, also charcoal... But that's what he looking for...

I believe they still have a coke plant in Erie, Pa. & if it's still up & running you could most likely get some there. Other than that it's the Pittsburgh area (Clairton Works) used to get some there, creosote as well.

Samhill, That's a good lead. I think I might have found a source actually fairly close to me. Much appreciated...

I have used hard coke in a forge and don't like it at all it goes out if you don't watch the air flow and its hard to restart however I think the coke I had used was destined to go to a steel mill. Check this out http://www.centaurforge.com/Coal-Coke/products/277/

Yea, I never like burning coke in the forge either. But what the heck, you can make it work... I'll have to get more knowledgeable about the different types of coke... $50 for a 50 pound bag is pretty steep - seems to me anyway... I guess they do have to cover shipping so maybe that's not all that bad. I'd rather find a local source.... I think I found one over in western NY - I'm over there several times a year so I'll have drop in and ask... Thanks for the link, if all else fails...
