Powered by a separate motor, the drive was taken to horizontal milling head by a splined shaft and gearbox
Motor/pulley assembly and high-low range lever for drive to the horizontal leadscrew. An alternative drive was offered--see below
An alternative drive system to the leadscrew involved a gearbox with two levers. The short lever selected forward, neutral and reverse while the longer lever switched between high or low speed. The small gear protruding from the face of the box was the output shaft and drove the changewheels.
Mounted behind the vertical column on the earlier model was a control unit for swivelling the horizontal beam. The square nut protruding forwards was used to rotate the beam while the hexagon nut on the left-hand face locked it in place. The short handle was used to lock the assembly
Earlier version of the Schiessl mounted on a base casting that held a train of gears to turn the compound table. The operating handle was on the right hand side of the top surface, its shaft fitting vertically into a boss split so that it could be clamped in place or removed when not in use.

Power-driven vertical tool slide - this was an alternative to the combined slide holder and horizontal overarm shown on the machine towards the top of the page. It mounted directly onto the carriage and had a screw that could be driven by hand or power from the horizontal leadscrew
Drilling attachment. Removing the drawbar and collet chuck allowed this unit to be fitted inside the spindle. The nose was equipped with a No. 2 Morse taper
Lathe tailstock--carried on the rear of the horizontal beam
Changewheels and their mounting brackets
Early spindle draw bar and end fittings - the shallow taper section machined on its inside with a No. 2 Morse taper
