    chimney question?

    ok ,i now have a chimney block chimney for the wood stove, with clay flues but the flues are stating to break up. amd i lost the outer part of the thimble tonight.... so my question is in a 8x8 flue space can i get a stainless pipe down ther and can i get a new thimble into it? preferablly stainless as well? i am pretty confident i can get the old flues out the bottom with soem patience.. any other ideas?

    Chuck's solution is probably cheaper than rebuilding that chimney. Otherwise using an air bladder you can lower clay liners back in but the will only be dry fitted.

    The Tee come in two peices, the one part goes onto the liner pipe and the tee part get clamped on when the pipe is lowerd into postion.

    Seems to me your problems started right about the time you put on that Santa suit I saw in your picture. Didn't try to squeeze down there did you?

    The one part attaches to trhe liner, which is slide down the chimney. The Second part(snout) is held in place by a person on the bottom and the liner slide thru it. The you tigthen up a band clamp and it is secure. Here is a link to the pic that show it.http://www.chimneylinerinc.com/elbows.htm

    Now Frank, he's already told you how small the chimney is.

    I saw something about pouring a new flue with a bladder. Similar to this:

    Maybe more cost than the stainless solution though.

    FWIW,

    Maybe it looked bigger after a few too many barley pops!
