Heidelberg 13x18 Windmill for dummies

OK I’ve been cutting envelopes for 21 years…HP die cutting, PHP die cutting, sheeting, and Polar straight knife THEN the people “upstairs” buy a Windmill and tell me they want me to run it! So…where do I start? I have 2 chases and a hot plate for foil and the machine. I found some used quoins and a key as well as furniture. I don’t know if I have all I need and where to get it let alone how to really run it. I got to go and get a quick overview for a couple of hours before it was shipped but other than how to actually start it I’m pretty much lost.
I will be scoring, diecutting and (gasp) foiling on it. I am in the Northwest and I have not see much posting here form this area.
Any points in the right direction would be helpful.

You should see if they’ll pay to send you to Denver for the next Heidelberg Intensive workshop at Foils and Dies!
