Overall, smithing is not incredibly good for money making in the short term, but good if a player sticks with it long enough. In addition, for players buying bars (because Smithing experience is earned faster at the anvil rather than at the furnace), bars of all types are also tertiary ingredients for Summoning, which has increased the demand for most types of bars, causing prices to inflate.

There is also a small demand for steel bars due to their use in Construction. Due to the relatively low prices for smithable weapons and armour, smithing items isn't recommended to make money, with few exceptions.

Effectiveness Smithing level requirement Details Risk factors Other requirements
***** Level 30 Players can mine or buy iron ore and two coal and smelt them into steel bars. If you possess a Magic level of 43 or higher you may use the spell Superheat item and smelt the ore without having to go anywhere! It is recommended that you wield a fire staff and buy the nature runes (one required per spell), although this method might earn slightly less cash it provides Magic experience and saves having to bank repeatedly.Head to the Dwarven mines and mine the ore there; smelt it after you have obtained a full inventory. Steel bars sell for 958 coins each. This method helps raise your Mining, Magic and Smithing simultaneously!

But the most efficient way to make money in f2p is buy raw material (2 coal , 1 iron ore) from the Grand Exchange. Smelt the bars in Al-Karid. Profit is about 100k an hour. Exp is about 8k.

Level 14 Scorpions 43 Magic if using the Superheat item method
***** Level 50 Mithril bars sell for 1,590 coins each. If the materials (one mithril ore and four coal per bar) are purchased, you can earn up to 231 coins per bar using the Falador or Al Kharid furnaces. At five bars per trip, you can make about 69300 coins and 9,000 experience per hour. Superheating the ore can be done with this method too. None 43 Magic if using the Superheat item method
***** Level 70 Adamantite bars sell for 2,984 coins each, and require one adamantite ore and six coal per bar. Purchasing the materials then selling the bars gives a profit of 189 coins per bar. At four bars per trip, you can make about 45360 coins and 9,000 experience per hour. Superheating the ore can be useful because of the low amount of bars per trip. None 43 Magic if using the Superheat item method
***** Level 85+ Smelting rune bars from eight (8) coal ores and one (1) runite ore yields approximately 328 coins profit per rune bar smelted. However, due to the difficult nature of obtaining the ores yourself, and the high pre-requisite price required, combined with being unable to smelt many rune bars at once due to inventory restrictions, this method should only be used for players who already have a significant amount of cash before starting. Superheating the ore can be useful because of the low amount of bars per trip. None 43 Magic if using the Superheat item method
