I am tryin to set up blacksmith equipment. I have never done any actual blacksmithing, but I have worked with iron most of my life. At this time I am tryin to decide between a gas forge or a coal forge. I'll not be doin work for anyone other than me. I am not interested in knives. I will never be able to do that type precision work.

Welcome from a transplant from Deep East Texas by way of Alabama.  I would suggest a coal over gas for general blacksmithing.  Gas has its advantages, being easier to maintain and get fuel for but coal can take odd shapes (if you make it right).

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."
