Difference Between a Forge Firepot and Firebowl
While coal is the popular choice for blacksmithing, coke burns hotter and is useful for certain applications. If you're mostly burning coal, a firebowl is the preferred choice, but prolonged coke use can break the blacksmith forge parts over time. A firebowl is deep and allows you to push the piece you're working with farther in and examine your work more closely. Firebowls are quite simple and often lack elbow assemblies and ashgates.
Coal forge firepots, however, are more suited to burning coke and have a thicker diameter to handle the intense heat of forging or welding with a coke fire. Firepots can be installed into masonry or steel forges, and many models are suitable for farrier work.
