Kent Cossairt, Tooling Manager
I needed a little coin to get the college tuition paid awhile back and responded to a memorable help wanted ad: Needed part time mold designer, polisher and janitor, $10 to clean the shop – on Saturday. That was the start of 40 years of mold making, mold design, tooling project and tool room management all in the same shop in the breathtaking surroundings of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
A whole lot of mold projects gave me the opportunity to meet and work with many talented people, allowed for a bit of time to raise a couple of fine daughters, and enjoy some awesome adventures in the great northwest like hiking, biking, skiing, and hunting.
I did get that college tuition paid and I hold an Associate Degree in drafting and design and am a Journeyman mold maker.
