    Hi all,

    I bought old Squire 50500 Fireplace insert. I'd like to use it as a stove (my house does not have fireplace nor chimney).

    I need to build a chimney. I am thinking of using this kit

    Does it make sense ? What I am not sure is what diameter of chimney pipe I should use. Shell it be 8" or 6" is fine ?

    To connect stove to a stove pipe I am thinking of using a boot, base on suggestion in this thread

    Thanks in advance, Alexi

    If you are going to spend that much money on the chimney I would get a proper EPA stove.

    Making an Insert into a free standing stove defeats the purpose it was designed for, I would resell it and buy an EPA free standing stove.
