I see there are a lot of people selling Clarke pot belly stoves on ebay
http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_f...elly+stove.TRS0&_nkw=pot+belly+stove&_sacat=0 I have contacted a lot of the sellers asking question about the fittings needed for this stove and they just don't seam to have a clue (for those that bothered to reply). Non of them are fire and stove dealers they just find something on offer in the cash and carry and just sell it.
The stoves are sold as stoves only and are absolutely useless with out a chimbley
Basically I want to fit one inside my ford transit van; and I need a flu pipe for it and a cowl (and if possible a way of rigging the air intake up)
I also see machine mart are selling aluminum ducting or flexi chimbley liner as they call it, 5" and 6"
Is this kind of piping fit enough to be used as the last bit of the extension and will it take the heat?
And my final question is why have all the sellers said that this stove if fit for burning wood only and unfit for burning coal?
So any help please on which fitting I need to get this stove up and running in my van
No idea on that specific stove, but many stoves with oval outlets were sized for a round pipe i.e. A 6" round pipe squished to an oval fits the opening.
A stove sized for a transit should have a small pipe, like a 4".
Are they measuring the inner or outer size of the fitting? 4 1/2 would be about right for measuring the outside of the fitting, but the pipe is supposed to go inside that fitting.
