4 inch stove pipe : where can I find it?

I have a Northwoods Mini Woodsman on the way. I had them put a 4 collar on it. I have some 4 black pipe I got locally for a good price. Im wondering just how much I need to do to safely run it through the roof.

I can only find B type in 4 size, but thats not meant for the heat of a wood stove.

Would there be any advantage to using 304 stainless steel pipe instead of the black pipe (24 gauge)? Do I need to run an insulated piece through the roof? Would a ceiling box work? Could I use a wall thimble for a 5 or 6 size to create some space around the 4 pipe running up through the roof?

I want to do this safely, but I also dont want to drop major coin on an install kit. Help please. Ive been internet searching and Im going cross eyed.

This is one of those projects that you do not want to cut corners use materials that are specifically for a wood stove, and be sure to have proper clearances. I saw a pic somewhere of a skoolie with a wood stove next to the bed...with the blanket hanging over the what looked like a fire proof panel.

I'm no help with the stove pipe but I will offer a related suggestion:


I have seen the aftermath of improperly secured items in a crash. I had a 40# bag of dog food come through the back window in my truck and snapped the headrest off on the passenger side seat. I am sure glad that the passenger seat was not occupied.

I bought some RV parts from a totalled Monaco RV. I don't know the details of the accident. When I got there the couch was sticking 2-3 feet out of the passenger side windshield. The copilot's seat was MIA....

All of my heavy stuff in my new bus will have 3/16" steel backing plates and be secured with grade 8 hardware.

Off the subject a bit........ Many say that marijuana is not dangerous. I beg to differ. Fact check it.... A man in Texas died as a direct consequence of too much marijuana.

He has almost 1000 pounds packed in a station wagon. Apparently not adequately secured. A DPS officer tried to pull him over for a failed tail light. The driver bolted and a high speed pursuit followed. It ended when the driver lost control and hit a tree. He was crushed by the improperly secured load.
