im using charcoal right now. Gets super hot fast but burns up a bit faster than coal from what I've heard. I know there is a guy in Spokane that's part of the nwba that sells forging coke
Are you planning to keep it real traditional or plan on going to techniques like pattern welding and Damascus? 
Quench and tempering?

no plans for damascus yet but I have been hardening and tempering tools that won't see a lot of heat.  Blades are on the menu

Made a quick gambrel the other day. Had a huge ram on it few hours later. No Bending or flexing even with hard pulling and I didn't even heat treat. 1/2" bolt steel.

Just started back into the heat myself. Been planning to add it to the knifesmithing, but only just got to it this season. Having a ton of fun! Built a forge, scored a 100lb anvil, made a few knife billets, just made a fully forged knife yesterday out of a huge old lathe chisel! Going to have it at the Pheasants Forever banquet next week, along with about 5 others... depending what I can get gripped up by then.

Will try to bring some pics over...

Thank you,  I got the anvil and a rivet forge from my wife's Grandfather
