If the 5" pipe fits proper;y, fine. If not, use a cloth tape measure and measure around the nipple comin gout of the stove then go visit your friendly tin knocker. He can whip up an adapter in about 5 minutes to go from the odd size to whatever you want. If it's steel, drill away. If it's cast iron you'll have to use a nice new drill, plenty of oil and go slowly.

Oil for steel, kerosene (or #2 fuel oil) for cast.

When I was piping the Alaska I was surprised to find that there were no holes in the collar for screws to hold the pipe. I took care of that in short order.

Or you could use a large "dryer hose" sized radiator clamp.

Don't use a hose clamp, it will not handle a good sized puffback. The Fire Marshall and insurance company want 3 screws in each joint, anything less and you are asking for trouble. I had 2 in the baro and it was blown almost completely out of the stovepipe, it was left hanging on one screw. I was lucky enough to be standing there when it happened, and it was the only puffback I have ever had to my knowledge.

If you use less than 3 screws per connection, consider it a "Death Wish".

My point exactly!!

Never use a hose clamp!!!
:lol: :lol:

(what idiot posted that suggestion?!?!) :devil:


( of course....a puff-back violent enough to dislodge a well clamped stove pipe would probably blow your house down too, so I wouldn't sweat it!) :D
