Stove Pipe Attachment

PostBy: etned On: Wed Oct 12, 2011 11:07 am

I am new to the coal stove world and have a brief question in regards to the stove pipe connection. I have purchased a Leisure Line Pocono rear vent stove and have an existing 6" clay chimney with stainless liner. I have a 2' x 6" section of stove pipe coming off the stove, a 90 degree joint, a 2' x 6" section, damper "T", 1' x 6" section, a 90 degree joint and a 18" section into the stainless clay pipe liner with all sections screwed together with the exception being the end in the stainless liner and the section directly off the stove. Unless supported from below the stove pipe sags down some. Should I screw the section coming off the stove to the stove itself?

Welcome to the forum!!!

There is no harm at all in drilling/screwing the stove pipe to the flue collar of your stove, although it may not solve your issue of a sagging stove pipe run, it sure can't hurt to try!!!

Question: do you have a crimped end of pipe IN the flue collar? Or a female/plain end slipped OVER the flue collar of the stove?

Thanks for the quick response. The end in the flue is crimped but the clay pipe extends out a little past the stainless liner so there is no way to screw in that end.

Opps I misread your question. On the stove end I have the female end (smooth end) of the 2' x6" pipe slipped over the stove's flue vent.

Sounds like a support under the lower horizontal run out of the stove and just ahead of the first 90 may be in order to keep it up where you want it...

Simple way to do it that looks at least OK as compared to a few bricks or similar would be: A piece of 3" C-channel, turn it legs down, layout center lines and drill a 3/8" hole dead center, then drill another 3/8" hole in the bottom side of the horizontal stove pipe just ahead of the first 90 degree elbow, support the pipe with blocks or whatever to get it to the height it should be, then measure between the C-channel (legs down) and the bottom of the stove pipe (where you drilled the hole) add enough to account for a nut under the channel and a nut inside the stove pipe... Nut and washer stove pipe inside and out and same for the C-channel, both top and bottom... There you have a reasonable support that can be painted or otherwise...

Good deal, the way you have it is the better way... In my opinion at least!!!
