A 1/2 inch tall ring will be welded around the perimeter of the circle.
I would make this ring at least an inch high, and if you make it a snug fit on the bottom of your 'stove pipe', you should not need any screws in it. My 10' flue (3 sections high) was self standing before I put it through the roof of the new patio and even today has no screws in it.
Sure, secure the base to the bricks but by having a 1" tightish collar" you will be able to slide the smaller convaluted end into the ring easily as they are usually tapered and get tight as you push ot hammer it home.
