Subject: Your Forum Handle
Date Posted: 25 Mar 2020 at 6:48pm
Out of sheer boredom I ask this: How did you all come up with your handle for this forum? I know some are obviously based on your name or whatever but some are more creative. Since I asked, my nephew always gives me crap about being an Allis freak because I like A-C's so much. He is an IH guy of course.

I am always welding, grinding or building machinery.  So,  if you walk into my shop you'll always see "arcs and sparks".  Maybe won't be able to see the top of the work bench or any open floor space but you'll always get a chance to take in some good old second hand welding smoke.  It seems like many things that are broken in the neighborhood eventually find their way to me.   Lots of the local pulling tractors have spent time on my shop floor.  I've worked in industry for my entire life.  The constant waste of material , tools and machinery from that source has sponsored many of the projects I've built or supplied parts that I otherwise could never have afforded to build/buy on my own.   I enjoy breathing new life into items that others have scrapped.   I get bored easily so the turn over is continuous but it keeps my mind active.   Age is starting to curb my enthusiasm a bit but I still seem to be drawn in by a good challenge.

When we bought our D17 Series 4 gas, we rolled it off the float, into the garage and started to tear it down and restore it.  So I adopted its moniker.  We had grandpa's D14 and 175 that we grew up on, but I never did make up a handle based on those 2.

I kind of inherited my grandfather's WF when scrap was high. 

Someone approached my aunt about buying it for scrap. She asked me what it was worth and I told her I would give her more than the scrapper. She wouldn't take any money for it and it was mine. It created a monster, I guess. I now have over 20 AC tractors, including my grandfather's WF, my Dad's WD45, 180 and 185. (I don't count because I don't want my wife to know for sure,,,)

I had a different handle on there for a while then requested it be changed to "Sugarmaker" by the admin at the time. They accepted my request and were surprised someone didnt have it already. It has stuck and I have carried it through several forums.

When I bought a few acres to putt around with some years back, I was looking for a 60-70hp tractor. I looked at (3020’s) and the sellers basically were honest and told me of some issues that needed addressed, then I went and looked at newer tractors that our NH dealer had available. Needless to say, I was sticker shocked. Having grown up on AC tractors on the farm(father still farming with those same old AC’s), decision was made that I was “allis bred” and should stick to what I know is good

My name is Richard Lamar Lemmon. I was raised with my middle name Lamar. When leaving the farm to work in the factories and your full name required on the applications, my time cards having only Richard and no one asking your name I became either Dick or Lem. As a wet behind the ears naïve farm kid I found early those two names were the best that I could be called if they were not excepted. I am still Lamar within the family and those I was raised around and Dick to those that I have worked with in business. On forums I am either Dick L or Dickel. On facebook I am Richard Lemmon because my wife set me up a long time before I used it as a way for her to learn how it worked by going back and fourth between the two.

Mine is short for Turkey Creek Jack Jenkins.......

Naw. 15 or so years ago we used to do a 2 hour drive one way at least once a week when we were trying to keep the in laws in their house. A good portion of it was thru an area here in northern Minn without a lot of houses or anything but woods and the occasional moose. Jenkins Creek was kind of a marker that we were getting closer to our destination. I was active in the state ATV association then and some forums got a little testy - I had some nasty phone calls from anti motorized people after being in a couple news articles - so I needed something anonymous. There was a "no motorized vehicles" sign at the trailhead by the creek, so it kind of stuck with me.
cheers,

I love to (Hunt), but forced to work on good old American made tractors(Allis) that I love b/c my dad was always working with the 1950 AC model b that I grew up on(normally riding the single plow that we used to fix up our garden on our small farm every year to add weight to it) now one of 3 Allis Chalmers tractors I own.
I can still remember the feeling of the hydraulics slowly letting it down and hitting rocks every now and then that would jump you up and down on the plow...( Lucky never got hurt!) My dad was a great guy and always was very careful when he would allow us to " help him"get through a hard piece of ground, or was it just for fun😉
This was long before video games or any other source of entertainment so that's all we had oh, well that and fishing all day long consumed my days 😁!

I grew up on a farm that used other brands. Years ago I brought a D-19 tractor,AC plow and field cultivator that had sat in a barn for about 8 years. After great luck with that outfit the rest is history. Now all we use are AC and Agco equipment. My hobby is collecting and learning about AC. ACSteve just seemed fitting. Nothing really special about it.

I grew up learning to ride/drive/operate AC D17 series I & farmall M & H. Then my Dad moved up in hp & acquired JD4020s & JD7520 4wd.
He did host a One-Ninety XT series III plow demonstration in 1971 or 72?? It pulled one of our JD F145s. I could not get enough of it’s sweet sounding turbocharged 301. It had my vote, but Dad bought the JD 4wd instead. That was the roughest riding, loudest cab tractor!!
A few years later, I was helping another farm field cultivate their corn ground with their AC 7050. Best demo ever! Fell in love with it’s floor button hi/Lo, it’s intercooled/turbo 426s snappy engine and its lugging ability especially on turns, smooth hydraulics, & it’s very quiet & easy to see out of cab.
Later when I began to get my own IL acreage, acquiring my own AC 7060 was no contest.

I started this internet journey on a site that had Ray and my most used tractor model taken so I tried a different number and here I am.  Proves I have very little imagination to come up with a clever name.
