This is my way of lighting a coal/coke mix fire with a hand crank blower, actually somewhat explained. Everything was wet from the rain so I edited some long boring crank the blower sections out. Five minutes of cranking to get wet char embers to light seemed like it didn't need to be in here. Total time for this fire was about 18 minute from clean pot to forging temp fire.
