    Try Menards. I purchased mine on sale , if I remember correctly, for about 75 for a 3' stick.

    I had mine shipped from Menards which had the best price I could find online. Unfortunately a number of the pieces arrived dented, some more than others.So, buyer beware.

    Check the local hardware store. I picked up a 6" kit and 8 feet of pipe (Metalbest all fuel) for just over $400 this summer. I don't think I could do that online and then I'd have shipping on top of that. With the hardware store they put it in their shed and told me to come get it when I was ready. The hardware store surprised me, maybe they will surprise you too.

  5. My local ace hardware can order from Selkirk/ metalbestos. Their prices are hard to beat.

    I can tell you what I did in this situation. I wanted to get Excel Stainless. I found a distributor online with free shipping, etc. I printed off my order and took it around to all my local dealers and gave them a chance to meet the price. I prefer to shop locally when I can, but in this case the difference between getting it online and getting it locally (at list) was pretty significant. I found a local dealer who gave me 15% off everything and actually ended up beating the online option. He said it is better to make some money than no money.

    That is true about Menards, all six pieces of mine were dented. Good thing I checked them at the store. I tried to even get a better deal by asking if the manager would discouraged them further, and no such luck. So I had the clerk go through all boxes unfilled I got six clean sticks. It may be best if you can go to the store and buy the pipe as you will be able to see what you are getting before you buy.

    I have 30+ feet of pipe I bought at Menards. I don't recall a single blemish. Must be my good clean living...

    Georgia Hillbilly, to get the dents out I purchased an inexpensive small suction cup at Harbor Freight. I was able to pull out all but the wost dent. I placed that dented piece at the top of the chimney below the storm collar where the temps should be lowest, and the dent exposed to the outside air anyway. And the dent is at least out of sight. Can anyone suggest another way to pull out the dents? I tried soldering a wire to the stainless to pull the dent out with, but the solder just balled up and rolled off. Didn't want to drill into it to attach something to hold onto.
