What you need though, is to provide your blast furnace with fuel. This fuel will then be used in converting your items such as your gold sword into gold nuggets.
This fuel when inserted with an object changes the status of your blast furnace to “lit” which means your blast furnace is now active and will smelt your item in half the time taken by a normal furnace. Hence, the blast furnace can prove to be a very useful tool.
