Just got my first real mill off the rollers and started cleaning. Came with arbor and supports. Would like to use it to cut splines and possibly find a vertical mill attachment.

If you tilt your head down and look at the table of your horizontal mill, you will find yourself looking at a vertical mill, well, kinda'...

His machine isn't a duplex machine like a No. 12 or No. 22. It's just a horizontal milling machine.

Van Norman did make a "Heavy Duty Vertical Attachment" and a "Universal High Speed Attachment" which would work on a No. 2 and give you vertical milling capabilities.
