6" flue on the Chubby...I'll measure the size in the AM for you. I also like the Mark 1, actually all the mark series. Oh, 6" on the Mark 1 also. You might find a small Russo, too. Great stoves. Gibraltar also. Remember, you can down-fire the hand feds this time of year by 'adjusting the coal siz'e you choose to burn. 80 here today again, but 45 on Friday...cool nights......It Is Not Over Yet, I don't give a dam what Al ( I invented the internet) Gore has or does say.
Don't forget that stokers can be slowed enough to be manageable this time of year, also.
Thanks for the info. I have leftover 6" Stainless pipe that I could use. Anyone ever run a length of stainless flue pipe and enclose it in a chimney chase? Seems a less expensive means than an all brick chimney. If I wind up installing a chimney chase, I might as well put a stove in the living room as well. I guess it will be between a chubby Jr. and a mk 1 for now.
As to the weather. Remember the El Nino storms of 1997-98? We started to get warmer weather after those events. In 96 there was snow galore, to even include the blizzard of 96. After El Nino, we started getting warmer weather for quite a while. Until recently things were getting back to normal, as the last 3 years we had steadily increasing accumulations of snow, and steadily decreasing winter temperatures. Recently, we have had some weather events. Notice, after the tsunami in Japan, the weather patterns did change. When storms and extreme events like this happen, they alter the oceans undercurrent (along with trade winds across the tropics) and so on. If these events happen with a change in weather that occurs afterwards, it can be believed this is what the causation of the following changing weather that seems to follow these events. If we stopped the combustion of fuels, the reduction in CO2 would be minute compared to what is in the atmosphere. I believe nature has far more an effect on the weather than man ever could have. Just about everyone wants clean water, air and so on. However, promoting faulty science to include altering data, excluding opposing theories from so called peer reviewed studies, locating temperature recording devices near devices that throw off heat (Air conditioners and the likes), on blacktop and in other artificial hot spots...do much to discredit the proposed man made global warming theory. On top of that, created was a grandiose scam of cap and trade which was almost passed.
Thanks for all the help everyone.
