The instruction manual that came with is rather minimal, I guess you set it up so the locking collar on the head is about the center point of the headstock, you then place the bowl steady close to the bowl so the wheels just about touch, lightly squeeze the handles together until the wheels contact the bowl. I would guess you want some pressure against the bowl, but not too much......
Does that sound about right?
The reason I ask is that the wheels wore down a bit when I used the steady, might be the very high silica content and the extra toothy grain of this wood, but I was a bit surprised to see the wear, and the plastic on the outside of the bowl.
Two of them eh?
Why not get one of those surround ones, I know it would not fit on my lathe where it sits now, so it is a no go for me, but your lathe sits in the middle of your shop...?
