Instructors at the Vista Forge have completed the program there and are certified by the California Blacksmith Association. The smiths at Vista routinely lend a hand to their host, the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum. "We do projects for the whole museum," said Bill Stone. "They're always bringing things up here, stuff they've broken. There's a lot of equipment out there, and it gets banged up."
