Help with connecting my stove to chimney

PostBy: hugg On: Wed Jul 23, 2008 9:37 pm

Hi all, I am looking for some advice on how best to connect my stove to my chimney. I just bought a house that was built in 1984 and the chimney is in good condition except the thimble. The terricotta is broken where you would connect the stove pipe to the flue. I bought a new harman magnum to live in the basement and hopefullly it will heat my whole house. I will post some pics. Thank You, Hugg

Two suggestions:

Correct way:

Get a mason to replace the thimble



My Way:



Chip away some masonry in the old thimble, run a stove pipe through the hole & seal it with stove cement. (watch for rusting & replace when needed)

I like the price of your way. I was thinking of doing just that, but not sure. Thanks

Is it just chipped at the end? If the hollow clay tile is solid and passes from the wall to the chimney's interior without cracks or missing pieces, it should be fine. Chipped up at the stovepipes entry is not a problem. Make sure the stovepipe goes deep but does not enter the chimney itself.
