    I just purchased a new NC30 for my house to replace the old smoke dragon I had. The old stove was installed by my contractor and had an 8 inch flue collar on the stove. The pipe was installed on the outside of the collar. I see with the Englander it says that the stove pipe must be installed on the INSIDE of the collar. Where has everyone purchased their pipe for the englander?

    Secondly, my pipe has a damper built in. Should I get a new pipe without a damper or is it ok to have on there?

    Congrats on the 30. Brother Bart will come along in a while to reward you with an E-30 t-shirt.
    I'd do it, but it's really his thing.;)
    Is the old stuff 8"?
    Could it have been double wall? All of the male ends should be pointing in the direction of the stove.
    If the old pipe is 8", you may want to change to 6".
    There are many manufacturers of stove pipe. I think I used Heat Fab, 22 gauge. Welded seam.
    Pics would help, if possible.
