I've got a 2 b that I'm guessing was made in the mid teens....maybe someone knows how to date it? Single round over arm, power feed on x, y, and z. It's a good old mill, many years left in it. It's a lot more machine than my Bridgeport clone when it comes to heavy milling, that's for sure. Anyway, I'm looking for a universal head for it, if anyone knows of one. Probably scarce as hens teeth. But if someone knows of one, let me know. Thanks.

As far as dating it goes.... Practical Machinist has forum threads that have to do with serial #'s. And if not listed start a thread and folk will chime in and give you an idea.
