    I am new to this and my husband and I just bought a Pleasant Hearth 1,800-sq ft Wood Stove. The collar is a 6 3/4" from outside to outside and we are having a very difficult time finding an adapter to fit our 6" piping. Does anyone have any advise, ideas? Thanks

    Your 6" connector is supposed to go INSIDE the flue collar. You shouldn't need an adapter. What kind (SWP or DWP) /brand (MFR) of connector do you have?

    The stove collar is supposed to fit a 6-inch stove pipe, but it's not, it's the same size. So we thought that we needed to get an adapter to fit the stove collar to the stove piping. We are replacing the existing stove piping which is all 6".

    Is the pipe connecting to the stove single wall or double-wall? If it's single-wall is the crimp on the bottom edge of the pipe, toward the stove? If it is double-wall, do you know the brand of the pipe?

    We bought a single wall pipe, yes with the crimping and we had that towards the stove. That is when he decided it didn't fit and that we needed an adapter.

    If it is very close to fitting the crimp may need to be made a little deeper. That takes a crimping tool like this.

    http://www.amazon.com/Malco-C5XXX-Pipe-Crimper/dp/B0002895EW

    This is a good one, there are cheaper copies if this is going to be a one shot deal. Or take the pipe to a stove or sheetmetal shop and ask them to deepen the crimp.

    Oh, I see. Okay so if we can try again and/or use a crimping tool we should be able to get the piping to fit around the stove collar (theoretically)?

    yes, if it almost fits, then deepening the crimp a little will make a difference.

    Not around the collar if single wall but in the collar. Double wall the inside section goes in the collar while the outside fits over the collar.

    Thank you so much for your help. I'll let you know if we have any success. This turned out to be more difficult then originally thought! Thanks again...

    If it's single-wall stove pipe (same as connector pipe), it is to fit inside the stove's flue collar, with the crimped end down. If you're trying to get single-wall pipe to fit around the outside of the stove's flue collar, you're installing it improperly. Rick

    So the double wall piping goes outside the collar, but the crimped single-wall piping is to fit inside the stove collar?

    Above you said you bought a single-wall pipe. Here it sounds like you're describing a double-wall pipe. We need to get our facts and terminology straight before we can talk about it with confidence. Can you describe, in detail, the stove pipe you're wanting to connect to the stove's flue collar? Manufacturer, product line, any sort of info on a sticker or label...whatever you've got. A photo would be fantastic.

    I'm afraid that if we're not all speaking the same language you may end up damaging the pipe you have. Rick

    Now, do I need to use any type of sealant to keep the pipe secure in the collar?

    No, you use sheet metal screws to secure every joint.

    I'd say you probably could use one of these:

    Yes, this is DuraBlack pipe. For 6" round you need the 6DBK-AD adapter.
