Standard form of the Schaffner F Series horizontal milling machine with lever-operated longitudinal and vertical feeds and cross-feed by screw

Heavy-duty vertical head with an ISO 30 taper. On this head, driven from the main motor, vertical spindle speeds were the same as horizontal

Schaffner F Series in another arrangement (Type SL-2) with screw-feed lift to the
knee and switchable screw and lever to the table's horizontal travel

Schaffner F Series in its most complex arrangement (Type SL-3) with a second handwheel at the table's left-hand end. In this modified form it could be changed to the Model F7M with power longitudinal feed from an electric motor with potentiometer-controlled, variable-speed drive

Yet another variation: knee lift by both a hand lever and screw feed. In this form the design was listed as the Type HSV

Schaffner Series 7 arranged as the production model F7-Pnl-Z. This version was fitted with hydraulically-driven longitudinal table feed with rapid return and both a pneumatic-hydraulically operated pick-off mechanism for the table's return - and a pneumatic transverse pick-off for the table return. Also fitted was automatic braking of the spindle with or without stopping the motor, delayed starting and table movement, a choice of round or prismatic overam and a choice of special speed ranges together with, if required, oil-mist lubrication of the English-made Gamet high-precision taper roller bearings.

The F7-Pnl-Z production miller fitted with an electro-pneumatically operated indexing head, the Type ET-100. The unit was fully synchronized with the table's hydro-pneumatically operated table feed with quick clamping incorporating a time delay. Once set, the unit operated fully automatically i.e. starting the machine put into action the spindle motor, the table feed and quick-clamping mechanism. After completion of the milling cycle the movements ceased automatically.

Self-motorised high-speed drilling and milling attachment Type BF1. This unit could be swivelled 90 each side of vertical and available in three different forms, the one illustrated being the basic type with down-feed by lever only. This was not the only high-speed milling head offered, the French-language catalogue shows a different type for mounting on the Series W stub-mill models, this having a crank handle for down-feed and three speeds, to choice, of either 1000, 2000 and 3000 r.p.m. or 2000, 4000 and 6000 r.p.m.

A rather more useful version of the BF1 high-speed drilling and milling attachment with the addition of quill control by a fine-feed handwheel.

In order to give two planes of swivel, a special bracket was available
