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 would be well advised to address it thoroughly in any design.

Re: The Odd OX

They make a sealant for stove pipes (don't remember the name) and it will hold up to the movement and seal against water leakage. We used to heat one of our homes with wood heat and we used it on our chimney pipe stack, plus David has used it on other chimneys. Try an ACE or TruValue. You may have to go to a "fireplace" store. I think we bought ours stuff at Reeves in Highlands. It was an ACE store. They carried lots of woodstove stuff.
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.
