Leveling C&P 10 x 15

I have leveled my Kelsey 5 x 8 and now need to do the same for my recently purchased C&P 10 x 15. How many bolts are there to adjust and I assume the procedure the same? Thanks.

If the 10x15 is a standard OS or NS press (not a Craftsman) then there are 4 bolts that adjust (level) the platen, located in the corners of the platen.

Assuming your 5x8 Kelsey also had the bolts in the corners (mine had the bolts in the centers of the sides), the procedure is exactly the same.

I am in the process of leveling the platen on my Challenge Gordon Press. I purchased this gauge from John in the states and it is very useful. Check out this link:
