Accessories were an integral part of the Schaublin system and allowed a simple, plain-turning lathe to be used for a wide variety of work. In this the Swiss were following well-established American practice and offered (in addition to the usual steadies and collets) a wide range of (profitable) extras. Amongst these, from the very earliest days, were screw and lever-operated slide rests, toolpost-mounted milling and grinding heads (for drive by round-rope "overhead" systems), thread-chasing systems, screwcutting and power feed attachments, revolving tailstock turrets for simple repetition work, lever-action collet closers for the headstock and various kinds of milling slides. Many of the items were adapted from or identical to those made for the 90 and 102 models and, as the years passed more became available until, by the late 1930s, the range almost equalled that offered by the likes of B.C.Ames, Hjorth, Pratt & Whitney, RivettCataract and Hardinge, etc.
If you have a selection of Schaublin 65 and 70 accessories and can contribute photographs, the writer would be delighted to hear from you.
