    Hi -

    I'm slowly getting the brick and mortar chimney extension completed. I've got a 25" outside dimension square of brick with the 12"x12" flue tile in the middle. This leaves a 2"air gap around the sides. Any suggestions on how to bridge this gap when I form the cap at the top?

    It is coming along. Next week is liner time.

    Ordered a Dolmar PS5100S saw... The old Mac's will be limbers now.

    Thanks in advanse.

    many use alumium flashing in the last course of bricks to fillin the space before pouring in the cap.
    spme make a form out of 2/4 or strapping out side. If you want a 1.5" overhang then space it witha 4/4 even with
    the top brick and add more wood 2.5" up what ever height so desired

    Domlar is now owned by Makita quality tools quality saw good luck with it
