We never had any trouble getting it going, but dad always had a good hot wood fire before throwing it in. Maybe a different type of coal?

What always amazed me was soaking the coal in water for the forge. raking up and pile of choke, sticking a piece of news paper in the middle, piling wet coal around the outside and it took off!
