Yes, the thumbscrews go through the hole in the right end (of your image as posted) of the big square plate. That puts the axis of rotation about where the pan's contents are...so that the pan's contents slosh the least. The further the pans are from the center of rotation, the bigger splash it makes...

IIRC, the sliding part is to allow you to lock the stove and prevent it from swinging.

You can see the setup in this image of the assembled stove and bracket:

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
