I got myself an inexpensive used stove to heat a small space. I'm thinking about constructing a single chamber bell on top of the stove (where there is a 6in outlet). I searched but haven't seen this done (possibly for good reason?)
Initial thought is to construct it of brick. A brick rectangle atop the stove with some kind of manifold back to 6in pipe
Thoughts on this? Ideas for a suitable manifold from brick to metal?
The problem with what you want to do is the wood stove will not burn clean enough and your bell is where the unburned hydrocarbons like Wood tars and Creosote are
most likely to settle out onto the interior wall of the bell ! You may have better (or Worse) with the masonry hats !
