Although illustrated in a circa 1920s Weisser catalogue this Model  CP,EP precision plain-turning lathe with sliding-headstock screwcutting could have been made at any time from the late 19th century onwards.

Another  circa 1890 to 1910 foot-treadle driven Weisser, the Model EE, but fitted with a screwcutting gearbox, automatic disengage to the carriage sliding feed and an ingenious drive to the toolpost-mount high-speed milling and grinding attachment. Unusually, the nose of the headstock spindle is surround by a division plate and the centre is attached to a draw-in collet. A hardly-used, surviving example of this model in the UK has a proliferation of number stamps on all the parts - the stamps clearly being of a hand-made and hence all of  a slightly different form.

The same Weisser Model EE as the picture above but in basic form for drive by a remote countershaft

Another but more highly developed version of the Weisser EE with geared headstock, built-in motor drive and electrical control gear - and a separate power shaft for the sliding and surfacing feeds

Weisser eccentric chuck for ornamental turning
