|+||====== Bolts ======|
|+||The pieces of [[f:furniture|furniture]] that are placed between the [[h:head-line|head lines]] of the pages in a form of twelves, to form the[[m:margin| margin]] at the head of the pages, are called //Bolts//. |
|+||The bolts are cut to the width of the page, so that the [[g:gutter|gutters]] go a little way between them, and secure the sides of the pages the whole length: I would recommend to the [[c:compositor|compositor]] to cut his bolts square at the ends, and of such a length that they shall go into the measure of his [[c:composing-stick|composing stick]] easily; he will thus prevent the [[f:folio|folios]] or any letters at the extremities of the head lines falling down, as well as the bolts [[b:binding|binding]] against the gutters.|
