How many coal blanks you want Marc? Boys sent/brought me 2 -5 gallon pails of crushed coal back from ND! Considering what I got out of that little bit you sent, I should have coal blanks coming out my ears down here when I start casting them!! :rofl:

Shoot, if you do any casting with that, I wouldn't mind buying or trading for a few of them blanks!

I'll take a few solid ones. No tube....
Maybe even a bottle stopper size blank?

You're on guys!! Was already thinking of doing some bottle stopper size blanks, need to turn a few goodies and send back to my coal supplier! As stated earlier he works in the coal yard at the plant, asked if I needed chunks or dust or what. Buddy told him, I had ground the last stuff, and he said I've got a great big pile of coal that's already ground, so that's what he sent. Not sure how fine it is, but it isn't going to take much to finish it, if I have to do anything to it.

I'm hoping it's not ground real fine, would like to have a little bigger chunks for bottle stoppers and such, than I wound up with on the pen blanks. Not a lot bigger, but big enough they're obvious.

NO... it's not that fine. Just not sure how fine it is. Need to run down and grab the buckets and take a look at it.
