Labor Furnace operating
This article is about an older version of DF.

The Furnace Operator skill is used to make metal bars from ores at smelter, to melt metal objects at a smelter, and to make pearlash at a kiln. As bars do not have quality levels, the sole benefit to having a skilled Furnace Operator is the increased rate at which jobs are completed.

Unlike in later versions, Furnace Operator is a moodable skill, so it may be wise to further train any immigrant metalsmiths in their other smithing professions.
