I picked up a really nice old coal burner yesterday and need some advice.
All the sections came apart clean, No cracks (amazing) I am going to wire wheel and hi temp paint the whole thing. The sections have a "Hub" style fitting, sort of like terracotta waist pipes.
So do I fill the channel with furnace cement and smooth it over or do I stuff hi temp rope in there too?
What is the best type of cement for this cast iron application?
Also its got a 8" exhaust with a barometric damper, can I run that into a 6" flue?
P.S. Check out that Kidney!
