new to forum seeking darkroom enlarger advice

I've got a durst M601 enlarger. I've managed to put it together. Its got an old style two pin plug. What do I do next. Do I need to run it through a timer to get it to work. Or can I plug it into a mains adapter. I did try the mains adapter but the light didn't come on. There is a bulb in it. But I'm not sure if its working. Not sure if its the bulb or the actual electrics.

Any tips? Any help or advice would be gratefully received.

I am so use to using a darkroom that's already set up. I'm kind of at a loss.


(I'm hoping its something really simple that I've over looked)
