    Hey Ray,
    I think it looks like you did a real nice job! Are all your clearence ok from combustables. Can you have a stove expert come over and give it his blessing just to make sure everything is cool for safety reasons.
    Do you have a co detector in the house with some smoke detectors? That the first thing the inspedtor asked me when he was checking the PI out. He also asked about my 6 inch stainless steel liner. Its gonna work great. Jim

    ya all my clearances to combustables are beyond the minimum requirements, and i have several smoke detectors and a co detector also, i will talk to some of the local guys i know with stoves and see if they will give it a closer inspection, i cant wait to start burning the stove inside.. still gotta get a slip conector and firebricks too, then maybe i will drillstop the cracks in stove and weld them up.

    Thanks for checking it out for me lanning!

    I am not crazy about that gap in the pipe? Are you ok with it. Jim

    You should start another thread with your questions rather than sticking them on this thread you'll get a better response...

    it seems every piece of this insulated chimeny by simpson duratech i have has that little gap. so i think it must be standard.. watch th e video i took, it looks allot smaller in that then it does in the still picture.

    I don't think you'll find that the sealer you used will ever get hard....its an asphalt based sealer and its not supposed to harden. They don't call it "Black Death" for nothing. Most all of the black roofing patch material is the same.

    Good luck with the stove.

    well checked my buildup and it doesnt seem like much at all! its very thin and powdery too i touch it and it dusts off.. looks like once every 2 months checking is safe.
