Anyone have experience? I know you can do this with normal wood stoves. The previous owner did stuff I need not explain but basically secured that only a 6” pipe can go through the cieling, but I want an 8” system. Will it work? How much vertical draw will I need for the transition to not throttle it and back draft?
Planning on doing that this summer.
Replacing my old standard double barrel stove in the shop with an 8" J tube and a double brick bell. It will have a 20' rise up to the roof with most of it being 8" but the roof has a 6" metal bestos chimney so reduce to 6" for the last 2'.
I know that Matt Walker and others have done this. I expect/ hope for , no issues with it.
