Topic tags/keywords: resource question

My parents bought a home recently that had a wood stove in it. They don’t want it in the house (my dad has laid claim to it for the garage) and we can not figure out how to get the piece that goes around the pipe at the ceiling down. There’s no screws in it and nothing seems to turn….. other than destroying it to get it out does anyone here know how to get it down?

Mine is attached at the bottom with screws, just below the flange. Yours is probably held in place above the ceiling with a ‘stop collar’ or brace of some sort. it appears the flange of yours rests on an extrusion of the stove pipe. Looks like you may have to do some crawling up there! :)

Heads up, you must go into the attic or space above first, if you have not removed the insulated chimney sections they must be removed first, the whole weight of the chimney rests inside this fitting. After the chimney sections are removed you can remove the screws or nails that attaches this fitting to the framed box in the attic or other space above. When this is done the whole fitting can be removed from below, that wider shield fitting will come with it.

+1 Very good point! Needs to be disassembled from the top down. A minor omission!:)

Thanks for the info guys….. I was afraid I was gonna have to crawl around in the attic, sounds like the fears were justified. Lol

Nice save. I posted too quick but I had to when I saw it, better than having 100 lbs. of chimney come crashing through a cut fitting. I have read that story before in the paper.

Check with a fireplace shop or a place that sell them. they’ll know how it comes out of there!...but I think Carlos has the answer! Isn’t this site great????

JCamp, Hopefully, it has been safely disassembled and parts relocated by this time. Now, the patching begins, (Fun times!) ... I’m pretty sure it was installed easier and quicker than it was taken out! If your Dad’s going to install it in the garage, for a shop I’m assuming, fumes from solvents/flammables are a major concern near a heat source such as a wood burning stove! I have a friend who’s had one in his shop for many years. It is ‘very’ well ventilated. I’m sure there are LJrs who can give good advice on that topic.
