Default older production lathes

at work there are a few lathes that nobody really remembers how to use
the hydraulic tracer attachment.

we simply use them as a manual lathe now.

are there any guides anywhere, have any of you used that before?

Go look at Keith Fenners you tube channel, he uses one a lot in his
older videos and had a video where he talked about how it worked and
setting it up.
