You can't spit at the internet without finding information on Atlas lathes, so I'm not sure how you are searching.

That lathe was both badged Atlas and Craftsman.

First place to look is vintagemachinery.org, and you will find catalogs with all the specs and what accessories were available.

Then look on ebay for a manual. It has pretty much all the information you will need, both information specific to the lathe as well as general machining information.

Post a picture so we can tell exactly which model it is.
