Just arrived Aceria F1

After years of searching I now have a new and never used Aceria F1 milling machine. It came with some accessories but not all, now I am on the hunt for W12 collets and a rotary table.
I set it up yesterday, oiled the spindle as I am sure after 50 years the old oil, even contained within the spindle was in need of replenishing, then plugged it and turned it on.
All ran as I expected
