chimney liner size for stove

PostBy: musikfan6 On: Sun Jul 29, 2012 1:52 pm

Hey everyone.

I sold my Franco Belge coal stove, FINALLY!! I was able to get 450.00 for it, which is not what I paid, but I'm satisfied as I didn't want to lug it down to Texas with me.

I'm still trying to sell my 5 inch stainless steel chimney liner. I'm finding that many of my inquiries are looking for a 6 inch. Is it not safe to use a 5 inch liner with a 6 inch stove vent?? I'm just wondering because I think that the size of my liner seems to not be the more popular. My franco belge was a 5 inch, thus my 5 inch liner. I don't suppose it would be a good idea to use a reducer pipe and put a 5 inch liner on a six inch vent?? I'd be surprised if this is safe or even allowable..

Thanks for any information, folks.

Nope, you never want to go down in size. Seems like you got a decent price for the FB though. Good luck in Teyhas.

I had a feeling that it would not be good to go down in size. Me thinks that there are more 6 inch stove vents out there than 5 inch ones. Sigh.........


Yes, I was happy to get what I got for the FB stove. It was a great stove and I will miss it. I would buy one again in a heartbeat. I happened to get a really nice one, and now someone else has a really nice one, too! He's going to use it in his garage when he's "puttering around". His garage will be cooking with this stove!

Thanks again for the information, SteveZee!!

No worries Musik, Good luck with the move but I know your going to end up missing winter. ;) I for one, love all the seasons we get up here in Maine. We don't get the extremes that other places do (like 100 degree heat) and in fact on the coast here, where it is a bit of a micro-climate, the winter's are not all that severe either contrary to popular belief.

I hope you can get rid of that 5" liner but I can tell you that I too have a brand new one sitting in my barn in the box. I've had it in Uncle Henry's a couple of times for half price and nothing.

FF, You are hilarious!! Funny you should say this. I just got done talking to my insurance agent in TX today, getting things squared away with my homeowner's insurance. She was telling me how EVERYONE in Texas packs heat. So yeah, you are correct. No worries here, though. I married a beautiful babe so I don't need anyone else!

Thanks for the laughs!

Ha,ha,ha yep I've heard that about Texas too. In fact someone told me that if your packing in Texas, by law, you have to have it loaded. No excuses then I guess, You can't say hey it wasn't even loaded when you get blasted for passing the teller your deposit ticket and someone things your making a withdrawal :lol:
