After completion of Dwarf Cannon, players can smith cannonballs, which is profitable since one steel bar at 550 coins produces four cannonballs worth 792 coins total, thus 242 coins profit. Depending on which furnace the player chooses, he or she can produce between 540 and 600 cannonballs in an hour. That means the profit margin falls between 130,680 and 145,200 hourly.
Edgeville furnace is the closest furnace to a bank, and it has no requirements, but the others do. Neitiznot is the second closest, but it requires The Fremennik Isles. Port Phasmatys is third and requires two Ecto-tokens for entry unless the player has done Ghosts Ahoy. Lastly, players must pay 10 coins to pass through the Al Kharid gates to use that furnace if Prince Ali Rescue is not completed. An Amulet of glory or Ring of dueling can be used to bypass the entrance fee, however.
