Hi Everyone, :D

I just joined here today, as I belong to several differnt tractor forums. I really enjoy corresponding with other who also collect.

We don't only collect Olivers, we collect several makes/models.. ect.


We love most all makes and models.

I hope to learn a few things, and enjoy the forums . Everyone take care care, " DJ"

Welcome aboard! It's always good to see new people joining in. It seems like conversation has been picking up around here lately, which is great since it usually slows down once spring arrives.

We look forward to hearing more from you.

Greetings and hope you find it interesting here. There is a wealth of knowledge on here and folks are more than willing to help out. I think you will find some of the most cordial folks on here. I have to ask, what do you collect to become the "nutty collector?" ....just curious, I might already be there! :wink:
Most Sincerely,
Cal

Hi Cal,

Thank you for the warm welcome. I am sure that I will enjoy all that the forums have to offer.. :wink:

Well now, the "Nuttycollector" thingy....

We collect tractors.... all kinds... not partial to any... 8)

Then we collect "JD garden tractors."... :!:

And then... of course... "Pedal Tractors"... all kinds...

Now that is just the "tractor" collections.... :) And of course... We "RESTORE" them all...

As well as do restorations for other collectors...


I also collect "Antique Oil Lamps and Lanterns".... approximately... 200 of them in our house...


I also have a collection of over 200 bells...

"Ford" and "JD" tools....

As well as many "other" collections... :shock:


This is why we just added another 1100 sq. ft.. to our house. :D

Some say we could have our own... " museum" here... LOL

This is why I am the "nuttycollector".... I love them all. 8)

Shoot! I guess I'm closer than I thought. We have a few old oil lamps...mostly Bradley and Hubbard...for the practical like when we lose power! My wife is from Belltown! (East Hampton , Conn.) Bevin bells...if You collect 'em I am sure you know the name. Her mother did work there, but the business is all closed up now, although some of the factory buildings are still there.
Never did get into the pedal tractor or the toys, but all tractors of all colors are fair game around here.... mostly Oliver, but Massey Ferguson, Ford, Case, and ....Dare I say It??? a Kubota.....well there, I said it! :lol:
I enjoy restoring any we collect, but use all of them also.
Here's another collection.....my wife collects Old Town canoes, (made in Old Town, Maine) the oldest being from 1915. As the build cards are available for most Olivers, so are the build cards for these Old Town canoes. Each had a serial Number on the stemband and the factory will research it for you for a 4.00 dollar fee. Cool! They tell you to who it was shipped , when, and with what options, as well as a blow by blow of the assembly at the factory.

It seems that once the collecting bug bites, there is no cure for it. It is a bug well worth catching though. Caught it quite awhile ago myself. Glad to see more people on this site. Welcome to the nutty collector
