|Job Title||Furnace Operator|
|This article is about the current version of DF.|
The furnace operator skill is used for furnace tasks, such as melting metal ores into bars, melting metal items and creating metal alloys. It is also used at kilns for creating pearlash and plaster powder. Having higher skill levels does not improve the output in any way. It only allows the task to be performed faster.
Note that a separate labor, wood burning, is used to make fuel from wood.
