If your chimney is that strong, put in a 5" to 6" adapter and use a 6" baro.

Sounds like a pet peeve, huh?

Ok here is my peeve. The jerk who fills his coffee mug while the pot is still brewing so the rest of us get to drink hot water. I work with this guy. He is gonna get punched one day. :mad:

Well when you just spent a couple hours traipsing through the woods in 1.5 foot of snow with case of beer and all you stuff strapped to your back, it's 20 degrees out and takes a good hour to get a nice fire going and some jackass new guy knocks the fire down into the nice wet ground below it we have problem. :lol: True story and it happened more than once.

Coal Berner,

Thanks for the link. I'll check the local HVAC supply. They should have something useful.

Keep warm,

tsb, the Field type M draft damper does not use a Tee. You cut a hole into the pipe and bolt on a shroud that comes with the damper. I'm pretty that with minor modification a 6" would wrap onto and fit a 5" pipe.

Figured I'd bump this up since so many new people have their stoves lit now.

This thread has it all. Coal tending theories...humor...even one scary looking homemade baro that scares the hell out of me. The title of the thread should be "Stay away from my fire or I'll kick your ash!"
