Default Specifically Technics 1200 M3D maintenance?

Hi everyone I am a mobile DJ doing 10-12 weddings a year I've been building my sound system for 3 years now and teaching my almost college graduate son how to make extra money on the weekends. Anyway I bought a brand new 1200 M3D 7 years ago, well I went away in Asia for contract work for 5 years and brought with me the turntable never used it once now back in US I mounted the Concorde needle and fired it up sounds great. Now how do I do a little maintenance on this especially oiling and cleaning the internals? I may buy another near mint 1200 M3D in the next month to use it as a time code turntable with a traktor S4 mixer. Thanks!

I bought a used M3D a few years ago, that obviously been a DJ deck. I put a couple drops of oil in the bearing when I received it. That's all I've done to it.

Get some of the proper oil from KABUSA.com . It's specific, and has a very high film strength as the bearing is not an oil well. Oil the bearing once every couple of years and you're good.

Does anybody have the specific brand and type? These were made in Japan from Panasonic I would not know about Japan bearings for the Technics? Thanks for all the replies!
