    This looks like good stuff and not too bad a price. Also take a look at the Bendaway Plus and Bendaway S in stainless at the bottom. Also not badly priced for 25 feet.

    Yes and the stainless is good to 800 degrees for one type and 1650 degrees for the other. I noticed the price lists are dated 2011. I just sent them an email to see if those are still current or if they have a new price list.

    A little expensive at about an average of $10.00 per foot

    Yikes...didn't realize that was a per foot price. Even the aluminum alloy is $10/ ft for 25 feet. Why would it be as much as stainless?

    at a quick look I saw the prices and thought they were really cheap but then looked and the longer the pipe the cheaper it became lol

    I did my Fahrenheit and my Wood eater in the last week (OAK'd).

    I bought rigid 3" vent and then used 3" flex (found at ALL local Hardware stores)

    Less than $40 for each one, including cap and tape (high temp foil)

    I purchased 25ft of 3" aluminum flex tube from Chimmeny Liner Pro for $38.63. My neighbor did not have O.A.
    for her pellet stove. Installed it down the chimmney along the 4" SS vent pipe.

    I bought a 6 foot long piece of automotive flex exhaust pipe from VIP Auto Parts for around 20 bucks. It's the only place I found a long piece. It was 2" ID which fit over the OAK connection on my stove perfectly. I only need about 4 feet. I have a 20 foot straight rigid 4" flue so I have the inlet damper closed down pretty far because it drafts pretty good.

    I used 3" rigid for the most part, then 3" flex. All found in the Dryer vent section of the hardware store. Then a 3"-2.5" reducer, and done.

    I just did my Woodstove yesterday and did the same thing, except the woodstove has a 3" inlet, so a hose clamp finished it off.

    Was about $30 for each one. Including the cap outside, with gutter guard as a rodent screen. :)

    Been meaning to do it since last season. But.... ;em

    It's thin flexible stuff. I twisted and folded the end over on itself and clamped around that.

    Just found out from Harman that the 2-3/4" flex pipe they have for the PF100 OAK is stainless. I checked a local Harman dealer for the price of that part number and they said theirs was galvanized... A VERY EXPENSIVE galvanized at $6.99/ foot.!

    What does OAK stand for? Outside Air ?

    Outside Air is correct... Why would anyone take warm air from the inside just to be lost out the vent unless stove position makes an OAK difficult?
