Is this a 5th impression screw?

Hello everyone, I am curious about this large screw at the front of my Golding. The screw is long and connects through to the platen. Is this a 5th impression screw?

Hi again,

No it attaches the platen. There is a spring on the bolt that keeps the platen against the adjustment shims. It should be fairly tight. If too loose, several things can happen including unwanted movement when moving the throw off lever on and off.


Thank you John. It makes sense now.
