I picked up a sheet of 0.7mm stainless steal 1800*900 for about $30 on ebay. The thickness is about as thick as you can go if you use snips to cut it.

Finished the flue transition. I made the this so there is an air gap to allow for expansion movement. The transition piece has been flared both top and bottom to fit in place. Only the top SS to SS joint has silicone sealing. The bottom of the transition will not.

Nice sheet metal work!

Have a question about your chimney, is it single or double wall type?

If it is single, what type of silicone will hold up to the high stack temperatures?

Did you make the termination cap as well? Looks like you have the tools, and knowledge to pattern and fabricate it! .7 is a bugger even with professional heavy duty snips! I'll be working with .6mm next week and not looking forward to the possible blisters!

Keep up the great work.. enjoying all the pictures!

The chimney is single walled. The silicon I used is 300 degree C rated. Sika brand its not recommended for external use, but hope it does work for a while. This is one reason I used the transition piece. Even if the silicon broke down it may not let much water in as the gap is almost non existent. its a tight fit metal to metal, allowing no water to pool around - it will shed most water without any sealing.

See attached photo. I also lifted the transition up to give a gap. It does not touch the dome. An air gap exists between the end of the SS chimney spigot all the way through and around the translation.

The carbon does not burn off the inside of chimney and castable flue gallery so does not get as hot as the internal dome. I am guessing perhaps 300 C.

The silicon will be at its design limit.

The chimney and china man's hat where bought from "pivot on line" in Melbourne. I think the web site has expired, so can't link to it. A 1200*150 dia pipe and china man's hat was about $130 shipped to Brisbane, from memory.

The SS at 0.7 is okay to cut with Wiss snips, and large Gilbow's for strait cuts. I would not like to do a lot of it in one go though, it's tough. I am an ex Plumber so have worked with lots of materials over the years, Including roofing, and other metal work jobs. Metal work is part of the Plumbing trade.
