That's it but Pocono wanted it higher on the extension. If it's strong it's OK.

Maybe you could butter the end with furnace cement to make a good seal when you put it up. Be careful on the roof.

Less than an hour for you to do it. You certainly don't let any grass grow under your feet.

if i put the cement on it will fall of the first wack i give it, i will try to find a big enough hose clamp to go around the legs and snug down on them, I ran out of rebar I used it for another project :bang: so these legs go down close to a foot and a half I can make it work

Although, if you want extra height, why not take a 4-6' piece of casing or sch 40 or whatever and attach it t the top of the existing casing using either clamps, welding, or heavy sheet straps.

I do have a 2 ft pc of casing just debating how to make a flange i have a welder but leads are not long enough to reach that high. i was thinkin a slip or somthing to the nature, but i dont want the damn thing comin down n conkin me on the noodle :hammer: when I wack the chimney with a hammer, the way I clean it is give it a couple wacks, u hear the soot/cresote fall, then I open my cover at bottom and hoe it out, alot easier than gettin up on the roof on a bad day, I guess its just the price you pay for being thrifty, might try a strap deal, but what would you suggest? I thought of maybe goin to a heavy truck parts store and seeing if i could possibly get a exhaust band clamp that would close down enough to hold it, but I dont know how much one of those would be and size, it is 6 3/8 round so I imagine that an 8" band should work???




You Mean somethingg like this? NAPA has them. usually in 1" increments, and a few with 1/4 or 1/2 inch incrementts. i have 2 sections to make it one clamp band.

YES, tha was what I was thinkin, cause I have had to put them on big trucks, but being that this 3 ft of well case weighs close to 25 lbs I dont think they would take mutch of me wackin on the bottom of chimney and possibly shake off from the vibration, thanks for that pic wilder

whack to your hearts content, they are pretty strong. SS and when clamped, they don't give.

I will try this for now and see if it will be ok, If not I will deff do that, no biggie I can knock those legs off in a heartbeat if need be, then again I might not be living here next year so i dont know. But that Is what I was thinkin about what you posted, but I was thinking of a band that was 8" i didnt relize they could be added till I saw your pic, in other words I would need 2 3 1/2 band clamps, the slack could be adjusted through tightening or loosening the 2 sets of bolts.... :gee:

don't use furnace cement to seal it, that high up on the stack use silicone (high temp copper from the auto parts store)
