    Help us find a missing coal forge - color black.  About 32" by 25". No blower, but a removable tool rack on the right side.

    This forge was loaned to CBA by the Murphys group, and needs to be returned to its owner.

    If you have any information about it's whereabouts, contact Tim Mann at tsmann@caltel.com

    Each summer the Aha Moment Tour travels to U.S. cities uncovering and capturing local 'aha moments' of inspiration in our 34" Airstream converted into a mobile television studio. Recently, on our tour stop in Jackson, MS, we met a local blacksmith named Lyle and learned more about his aha moment. This video captures the true art of a blacksmith. We wanted to reach out and share, as we think it'd be an inspiration to the California Blacksmith's Association!
