How do I remove the drawers?

Hi guys, new member here. I just acquired a South Bend 10" x 54" lathe and the journey begins. I've taken the lathe off from the cabinet to clean and go over it. I'm really pleased with the overall condition, it appears to have low miles.
Anyway, today's question, I need to remove the top right hand drawer so I can get my arm in to reattach the rear leg of lathe to the cabinet. I cannot figure out how to release the drawer so I can get in there. What is the trick? Thanks

I am not familiar with that system but I have found on some drawers a swinging stop on the upper (top) of the frame that needs to be lifted up to let the drawer go by. Usually near the front to a little back from the front
Good luck.

Thanks for the tips guys. Success! I was looking for the release on the outside of the tracks but the it is the two holes in the inside of the drawer. Pressed a punch in both at the same time and presto, drawer released.
