Lopi wood stove controls

We have an older lopi wood stove that has three sets of controls:
1- The lower set has two handles which slide horizontally and control the air into the fire box.

2- A single handled horizontal slide with six 5/8 in. holes located at the top of the fire box, and

3- The single handled control that pulls out and meters flow up the stove pipe.

Question: What is the function of no. 2 with the horizontal slide and six holes? How does it affect the fire when open, closed, or in between? I can't detect any difference in the fire one way or the other.
