Carbide Burr substitute?

I had to break out the die grinder with a carbide Burr today to egg out some holes on a combine today. I was rapidly reminded of the fact that the burr was a creation of Satin himself for all the...

The spilled coal is probably anthricite from the powder river basin. It will work but it will be hard to light, hard to keep going, and make a lot more clinker. So start the fire with charcoal then...
