    What do people use for the 2 inch intake pipe?? I was thinking a 2 to 3 inch adaptor,sheet metal duct pipe, and then out with 3 inch to fresh air..Home Depot has plenty of 3 inch cheap sheet metal pipe....
    couldnt find an adaptor like that online... what do you think??? I didnt see one at Home Depot either...

    Linky Poo Call them. They have 2" I got mine a few months ago. They ship out of NH very fast. I paid $35 for 25' and it cost $14 to ship. Part number is 2" X 25' ALUM FLEX 1TLXXXX0225 WITH ONE CLAMP. Good luck.

    I just got this in the mail. It's a carburetor pre-heater hose (2" x 3'). Should be no problem as far as heat, since this connects to the exhaust manifold of a car. Made by Niehoff, part # FE660. Relatively cheap too, I think it ended up less than $20. including tax & shipping to my door.

    Only thing you need after that is a 2" radiator hose clamp.....about a buck or less, and a piece of plastic window screen over the end to keep out bugs, dirt, etc. (Maybe a plastic dryer hood over it if you run it out the side of the house).

    I'm running mine to the basement, so I'll just be using the window screen.

    Bendaway A
    Single-ply helically corrugated aluminum alloy,
    Resists metal fatigue & most chemicals,
    Hand bendable and self supporting
    This is another metal hose I found at Ducting.com dont know price but it said it comes in 2-10 inches

    Yes, I saw that site when I was searching for the air duct.

    Unfortunately, for the 2"ID size, you have to buy a minimum of 5ft, and it's $8.34/ft = $41.70 + shipping (and tax?).

    The auto hose I mentioned above is MUCH cheaper.

    Have you checked with the shop where you bought your stove? They surely have a coil of it in stock and will sell it by the foot.
