Hmmm, that does look like a substantial hinge! The only way I can see that you could "remove" the arm would be to take out the screws that go in to it but that would be a real drag if you had to do it every time you wanted to use it without the platen. Mind you, the more I look at those instructions for "intensifying an image" the less I'm convinced it's a good approach - simply using a stamp positioner in the usual way gives you the same option and more freedom on placement as far as I can see.

I hate to be defeated by gadgets but I think I'm going to have to admit defeat here and say that if all else fails and nobody pops up with experience of using one and a brilliant answer, I guess I would remove the L shape by taking out the screws, grab myself a piece of clear plastic, ignore the platen and just use it like a SAMJ! Sorry not to have come up with the magic answer for you.
