I spotted a tractor collector out near Burridge, ON.

He is probably single, based on the evidence presented here:

In actual oldtools news I am busy making a box and set of disks
for a nice lady in the SCA.  The box is not turned, but carved.
I thought it would be cool to leave tool marks that would tell a
story to those who could read it.  The box interior was roughed
out with a centre bit, then finished with chisels.

And did you see the garden out front of those beauties. Clearly multi-

First advice I ever got for collecting things (like tractors) was to 
never neatly arrange them all in a row. Makes it way too easy for SWMBO 
to count them. Better to scatter them around the property.

my wife is pretty cool with the fact that I am essentially a
high-functioning hoarder. That being said, I practice the above
philosophy, just in case.

Don't be so sure.

Neighbor:  So how many planes do you have?
Me:  I don't know, maybe 70.
SWMBO: If you count the ones wrapped in rags, packed in file boxes under the
shelves in the garage probably over a hundred.
