    Has any one had any experiece with changing out the 8" flue collar for a 6" and burning this stove? We want to put on the 6" collar roughly 3 feet of pipe with one elbow and use a 6" to 7" increaser into a wall thimble (that is 7" clay) and into an 8"x8" tile chimney about 30' tall. I know using the fire screen will not work , any one see any issues.

    Thanks Joe
