A big and exciting weekend. The Gibraltar LCC finally came home and installed!!! Now, I am awaiting the colder weather now!
A BIG THANKS to coal berner for showing me (and answering all my dumb questions) his knowledge of coal, and mind you he is a walking book of coal! Again, thanks!
I have the stove pipe all cut and know just awaiting to set it in place and seal it. I was just curious about what everyone else did with the seams on the stove pipe. Coal Berner stated to use the 3M Flue Tape, but I cannot find it anywhere and trust me I looked.
O well, can't wait to get the 1st and only fire going soon!
Dan I sent you a Pm on where to get the Tape and Like I said you won't find anywhere around here Here is the link incase
you did not get it http://shop.doityourself.com/invt/u195412
I think I have a some left on my roll yet I will bring it over to your Place You can also get at bomberger Down in Lititz
if you are up for a ride I will say this I would use it after having my 3 Co Detectors go off over 6 times last winter at 1am
3am I would use the Tape it can and does come out of the pipe joints with the right condition after I tape them up
no more Detectors going off Your Like me you have little ones Running around the house better safe then sorry I will
come over with the tape You do not have that much pipe so taking it down and cleaning it will not be a problem you can take two pieces off and keep the rest on the other pipes I used it over already once I clean the pipe out the tape will stick again you only have to take the tee off to clean yours or just take the baro out and go threw there when its time to
shut it down for the spring just take the 2 ft piece off the chimney flue and cap it with your cap No big deal see you this weekend Oh one thing I burned coal for over half of my life and never used tape on the joints until last year when the
Co Detectors start going off So to you Guys that don't think it can come out of the pipe joints it can and does and yes I
use sheet metal screws on the Pipe joints 3 to 4 on each joints So Just because it did not happen to yet don't think it can't
