Yule 2017

Here are some things which you could say I desire that I have not yet purchased.

Fire Brick (soft brick type) Splits - preferably 9 x 4.5 x 1.25 or 9 x 4.5 x 1.5

At the moment I need 1, however these are soft and I have already beaten the heck out of the one I have so lets say 3.
My current setup has the bricks at about 1 1/4 inch or so, so the second website is too thick for the soft ones. But they ARE soft so I might be able to cut them down with one of my saws.

Rounding Hammer - Blu 5

Garland Hammer: These darned things last for bleeping ever which is why you never see them for sale on ebay used.
Garland 35003 split head hammer. One face rawhide and one face brass or copper.

A piece of steel 36 inches x 36 inches (or 36 inches round) at least 12 gauge (1/8 inch) thick. I don't know where you would find it and for that matter I don't know how the heck I'm gonna heat it to make it take the shape I want. This is in no way a near term project. More in the nature of "I eventually want a coal fired forge."

1/2 ton of blacksmith coal (bitumous will do but it HAS to be smithing coal.) If it is not smithing coal the sulfur content will be too high and smithing with it is VERY difficult due to contaminants. Put this on way on the back burner because I think I may have just found a source locally.
