For Reference -
New Departure Model F / FX are apparently oversized versions of the Model M intended for tandem or MC use (I'm looking for one)
Model K freewheeling rear is also for tandem or MC use

New Departure Model F & FX

F is the scaled exact enlarged copy of the M
FX is even larger with a floating axle

Pictures for scholarly reference.

@GiovanniLiCalsi I believe the F is from 1901 based on literature I have found and the dated bearing cage.
The FX I believe is slightly later from 01' - 10' or thereabouts.

The ND F & FX were certainly short lived hubs in the grand scheme, I think they were trying to compete with some very established competitors in the field such as Corbin.

Here is another one for the hub archive @Gary Mc

New Departure Controller / Iver Johnson patented hub.
This style of the controller features the brass rivets through the shell of the arm to secure the brake shoe in place.
Also shown are NOS variations of the arm, likely steps in the evolution of the design.

An unaccounted for entity!
@Gary Mc I'd love to try and get this shoe-horned into the first posting as it seems to be the only missing Corbin model listed.

Corbin Model 9 with single drive cog for belt drive motorcycles. Ca. 1909
