rockwell vertical mill Q

i have a rockwell vert. mill and when i put an r8 collet in it i couldnt find the "pin" to match the key in the collet. so i looked up in the quill and there does not appear to be one. is this normal for the rockwell? also what grease are you using instead of marfak #0 for the dovetails?pigpen60
