One thing to give thought to.... you know how we always screw the stove pipes together so a puff back will not make them come apart? How will it be secured?
I'm moving forward on this. I stuck my vacuum up the firebox and cleared out the spiders but the flash on my camera doesn't work so no pictures. Sorry . The damper is a 4 inch by 24 inch rectangle. It will be no problem to remove the damper flap and use an oval adapter to get the black pipe through to the chimney just at Terry suggested. As for securing it, I was thinking of using metal straps like they use to hang venting in new construction. I am thinking I could secured the straps with screws into the metal frame of the damper. I would connect the sections of the black pipe with screws and slide it in as a unit. Then I'd push the stove in and connect the pipes and use 3 screws to secure them. That's my idea anyway. I'm open to any and all input. Thanks, Lisa
