Is there some thing(setting tape?) holding this to the glass, or should the metal be pinched for a tight fit or is it just the small screw at the bottom?

If you can't find it, any glass shop should be able to sell you a foot or so. Most likely they wouldn't even charge you for it. Just need to have a can of WD40 to activate it.

Hi John. I had the same problem some years ago, there is a special procedure for installing the glass with glass setting tape, using mineral oil to make the setting tape swell, so the glass will be locked in place. I found out what tickness of setting tape needed. and where to buy it:
