    Default Van Norman #2 Info?

    I recently acquired a VN #2 Duplex mill like the one shown in the attached photo. Does anyone have any info on this model? Date of introduction, date when discontinued, catalogs, anything?

    Thanks,

    Here's a YouTube video of a No. 2 running:

    US Patents:
    570,723 Nov. 3, 1896
    578,588 Mar, 9, 1897
    (these are the same patent dates for the No. 1/2 duplex milling machine)

    Article about the machine in a 1896 edition of Scientific American (go to page 201):
