June 30, 1980 FIN – Douglas Ingersoll is opening a cold header training school.  The California School of Cold Heading will be in Westminster, CA.

“Plans are underway and we look forward to opening late this year,” Ingersoll wrote to FIN. “The school is being designed to specifically serve the needs of the fastener industry. Initially we will have classes providing training for cold headers and thread rollers. Classes that will be added in the future include screw machine training, cold header tool and die training, punch press set-up and tapping and drilling operations.”
Ingersoll, who is school president, said it will be a state-approved technical trade school.
The class overview for the Cold Header Set-Up Training Course (CH-1) I is designed to enable the student to: identify products made on cold headers; identify header tooling used to make different products; identify different types of cold heading wire; identify different types of cold heading machines and their functions; identify common problems related to trouble shooting; and set up and operating single die, two blow cold headers and two die, four blow cold headers.”
