Looking at replacing a well loved Drolet Escape 1400 with a Blaze King Princess insert. 2400 Sq ft house, built in 1890. Chimney is in the center of the house. 35 ft chimney, with a 6 in ss liner.
The fireplace opening in 33 in x 33 in.
Now... My question.
The back of the Princess has a 30 degree angle that has the flue attachment point on it. I'm not sure if I can get the liner to bend to that 30 degrees. What can I do?

An elbow

Stainless steel elbow to make the connection if you can't get the liner w/ appliance adapter to make the bend.

Possibly a damper on 35’. Angled appliance adapter

Just a thought, the Sirocco 25 comes with the adapter, or at least it did.

adjustable 90 will work
I really don't like to see adjustable elbows used for insert installs. I have seen to many come apart so I just don't trust them in that situation

you also cant physically see them once the stove in pushed back into place, I assume

Correct. I don't mind them where they can be seen and inspected
