Hi

Im connecting the single wall to the stove and im using an elbow for the connection. There is alot of slop, probably an 1/8" all the way around it. Should i use a gasket, furnace cement, both?

Thanks

I would choose another method or another brand of elbow. There is no standard for the sizes and taper rates of flue parts. I bet Woodstock could recommend a brand that is known to fit.

I would not goop that undersized elbow up with pooky and hope it works.

its better not to rush things and make sure its right.. thing can get really ugly really fast when you have half to 3/4s of a load in there and things start leaking and falling apart on you
you got another 20 days before you start burning.. 40 days before you have regular fires

Maybe even consider a tee instead of a 90. Some stoves require an appliance adapter before the first piece of flue.

Are you trying to put a crimped end into the collar?

Yes. Crimped end. I had another 90 and it fit better. I guess the first one was a bit irregular.
I didnt hook it up yet. 7" short on pipe so ill have to make another trip to town tomorrow. Ill look for an appliance adapter. I didnt see any last time i was there. Dont really want to use one as it will change the dimensions and ill have to reposition the stove.

See how an uncrimped end fits. If that works cut a ring or straight pipe slide it over the crimped end and everything works out
