All smoke pipe is triple screwed together. Every time I go to screw the baro damper in, it moves out of plumb! GRRRR!!! Metal tape all around for now. Will re attempt screwing when I calm down! Lol!

Good Idea....Never Screw when you're Angry,Upset or Frustrated ! :taz: :funny: Somehow the assembly's getting torqued. Recheck how it was bedded into the pipe,prior to drilling and fastening in.....

Briefly glanced at the tube of high temp silicone furnace caulk. Hmmm??? I'll have a beverage and think about it me more :D

I have found that slightly out of plumb does not make much difference. If it is only moving a little I would not lose any sleep over it unless your over-fire draft readings are way out of spec. That should be -.02 on the KA6 if memory serves me but I do drink occasionally so don’t take my word for it.

Mine's out of plumb too, a little. If I don't like how it behaves, I move the weight a little.
Perfect is the enemy of good. :)

I have a Fields Type M, and instead of screwing it in, I just sealed it in place with high temperature silicone rubber adhesive. The M's have very little perimeter lip through which to run screws.
