What is this
Below the stove-pipe collar and above the baffle
in my wood stove is a sliding metal plate.
There is nothing at all in my instruction manual
that shows or describes this plate.
My Guess is it's a bypass damper. If this is the case
how am I to open and close it with the stove pipe
Other than that i'm at a loss.
Your help would be appreciated.
