Re: The Odd OX
Hey Guys --- For the record...I just removed the little wood burner from my '46. The vent pipe was a really heavy duty chunk of what looked like 6" schedule 40 pipe that had been welded directly to the outer roof skin. No leaks possible that way. I can't imagine any kind of sealer lasting very long given the heat & vibration associated with it. Also, it had a steel plate inside attached just below the inner skin with spacers providing about an inch of airspace between them but I noticed while removing it that the old insulation in the overhead had significant heat damage around the pipe anyway. Those wood burners obviously crank out a lot of heat...you would be well advised to address it thoroughly in any design.
