Default Question about a Slingerland three point strainer

Just scored a Slingerland 56-59 snare with a three point strainer. Anybody know if there is a washer that goes with the knob that attaches the extended handle to the arm on the throw?? That handle has s little play with the knob as tight as it can go. I know I can put a washer there but I want to keep it stock(OCD)!! I I'll try and post pics tomorrow.

My Large badge (49-51) has a blued steel lock washer. Pretty sure original Understand the OCD on these things :-) Pic attached. Yikes, nothing like a close up picture to show that more cleaning/polishing is in order.

I haven't had any washers under the knob on any of my radio king three points.

some of them have a tad of movement. make sure the edges of the arm that attaches to the three point aren't bent out

My 40s RK did have a rusty small ordinary (not the lock type mentioned here) washer there. I actually lost it, I was quite frantic and devastated to lose what looked to be an original part but it did have a crack in it, I replaced it with a more modern one it looked just the same. Just use any suitably sized washer.
