I've assembled my pipe according to VC's instructions, and I can't help but feel like something is Just Not Right here. The old stove was a Fischer, and the crimped ends all ran toward the chimney; the manual for the Intrepid swears up and down that this is correct, but it feels damn hinky to me. With the damper open, I can see the glow of the firebox peeking out between pipe and collar. Should I cement the heck out of this and call it good? I'd found a piece that would fit over the collar, but decided to follow instructions instead; should I swap for that? I like the stove fine as-is, but I think I'd like it even better if it were air-tight.
