Hello from Minnesnowta
« on: April 12, 2022, 04:47:38 PM »
Not sure how I stumbled upon this group but I'm very happy to find a place that covers everything I've been collecting lately. I currently have approximately 200 tractor manuals dating as far back as the early 30's, mostly John Deere, Farmall, McCormick, International Harvester, and Allis-Chalmers. I do have some Case, Ford, and Minneapolis Molines also. If you're looking for a specific manual,send me a message and I'll take a look. I have other random manuals too, like for a Hillman Minx car, a Bobcat 371 loader, J.D. snowmobile, 1970's Chilton for cars from 1963-1970, and so much more.
I recently started picking up old wood working and forging tools, mirrors, headlights, tail lights, turn signal lenses and and full assemblies for vintage cars, trucks, motorcycles, and tractors.
Yep, I collect a little bit of everything... even gas nozzles. My friend owns a 20 acre salvage yard that is completely unorganized and random.. the other day I found a HK Porter bolt cutter from 1892, not worth much but still a fun find.
Yep, I'm rambling. Sorry. Very happy to be a part of the group and feel free to message me if you're looking for something... One man's trash is another man's treasure

Thank you! Will probably be listing some things tomorrow. Nice to know that they could be going to a person that will appreciate them
