Install progress on the Mansfield(2,450.00 including tax and delivery), Olympic 20' 316 Ti liner kit (475.00 including tax) and 25' ceramic wrap with mesh surround kit (275.00 including tax) = total cost so far 3,200.00 Last weekend I used a bag of morter (type S) to reenforce the interior of the chimney above the firebox and fill the gaps and cracks that had developed over the years. Yesterday I cut out the damper cross piece and put 4 notches in the brick to get the stove in deep enough for a better shot up for the liner out of the flue collar (now about 2 1/2" back from the upper inner steal 'L' cross support). Today I made the block off plate, according to the instructions on this site, out of what appears to be 24 gage )might measure out as 25) galvinised sheet metal that I had sitting in the garage for years. And I cut out two 17x20" sheets of same to mount on the side walls of the firebox to reflect out some of the heat. Unfortunately I am looking at about 20" recessed into the box and 4" out in front on the hearth. This is the only way to get a good clean shot up through the chimney. (Mansfield is top exit only) The current plan is to use lots of mineral wool to center the ceramic blanket insulated liner in the 16" clay flue and get the added insulation it provides. Now I'm off to get a heavier gage steel for the top plate and mix up some more morter for the final touch up work inside the box... The plan is she goes in next weekend. Speak now or forever hold your peace.
