    My chimney liners tap is a female 6 inch pipe. So is my stoves. Anything I can do when a female and a female meet?

    If you don't have the shown crimper, you can use long skinny needlenose pliers.

    Dangerous post--leaves you wide open to the nut cases on the forum.

    Personally, I don`t care to comment! After 35 years of marriage-I still haven`t managed to adapt. :)

    I used needle nose pliers. It took less then a minute and came out looking like it was from the factory. Thanks!!

    If you have the right size pliers, the last crimp matches up with the first and you can't tell where you started/ended. The taper on the pliers does a better job in transitioning the crimps than that hand held tool.

    I've worked with the bench top tool that rolls the crimp and puts a bead above it. Nice tool to have if you do a lot.

    Glad it worked out for you.
