STOVE PIPE CONNECTION

STOVE PIPE CONNECTION

PostBy: tstove On: Thu Nov 22, 2007 10:31 pm

Question,I have a gibralter insert I'm just about ready to install. There is a six inch collar on the top of the stove but it only sticks up out of the stove about 3/8 of an inch with a welding bead aroud the base of it.Thus leaving me with aprox. 1/8 of an inch or less to drill holes to screw my stove pipe in. I've never seen a pipe connection with so little metal to work with. I'm planning on running about 5 feet of stainless steel flex up into the first clay tile in the chimney.I'm a little concerned about a good connection at the stove.Anybody have any idea's? thanx

Hey tstove Put the crimped end of the pipe inside your collar the put your screw 's in
And use furnace cement around it to seal it

Thanx for the reply, but the problem is there's not enough of a collar sticking up out of the stove to drill holes to put the screws into,I've never seen any stove without a collar that sticks out at least 1 or 2 inches :(

Looks like for some reason someone cut about 2" off mine is 2 1/2 off the stove could you stick the pipe down as far as it will go and cement it That's about all you could do unless you weld another one on top of that one :?:

I was thinking of possibly finding a old cast flange off another stove, setting it over this one and drilling and tapping holes and sealing it with cement.I had a hearthstone stove years ago that had a similar cast iron flange that bolted on top of the stove because it was a soapstone stove.Problem now being where do I find one .I have a friend that probably could fabricate one with some 6" sch. 40 pipe.Oh well if it was easy anybody could do it :D

if your connecting pipe will fit down thru the hole, cut some slots around it (maybe 1" long), push it down thru and then down about 3/4" and then bend the tabs underneath and seal it good on top...and put a couple screws thru the top part just above the flange to keep it from slippling down thru.
