You don't need to replace it just do a face cut and you are good. No one will see the inside front of the dome. No worries, this is where I made all my adjustments as well.

hey Russell but I WILL know

I will replace it Russell, not concerned about doing that I have heaps spare ordered way too many. THe only reason I have left it is because I have marked the top to find my line back into the dome.

Have gone back to review Yours, Johns and Doug's builds for added inspiration [Doug left a PM for me and I was really touched by his comments, as I have been a little frustrated by my cock up and lack of being consummately meticulous This is my artistic flare and my sanity from my day to day occupation] to be patient and methodical from this moment on. I guess it gets harder from here.

and Russell I still cannot find a single insulated flue system in this country like you used. Importing from the UK will cost around $700aud. Quite frustrating, the UK have other versions of insulated flues that are much cheaper. I just find it strange that not one manufacturer importer brings these flues into Australia.

Have not been able to find US prices online. Any chance you might be able to give me an idea of US pricing?

If you want an insulated flue then you can easily get a cowl with a double diameter fitting. (Try Pivot Stove Co.) Get an outer pipe made up from colour bond (you don't need stainless because it doesn't get hot enough. If you want you can stuff the space with insulation or vermiculite.

Hi David

Yeah have thought of that! but Russell's flue twist locks into a neat chimney plate, and rocks. Us Aussies don't produce them. We're stuck with Double skinned flues no insulation and crappy chimney plates. and ordinary cowls. Yeah they work but don't Rock like Russells Selkirk.

Colin,

Our forum host have prices on duravent (right are very similar) right on this web page but I will see what I can find for you on the other brand. I am thinking as suggested by some of you local mates that you might check with a local fabricator who could build you just what you need. I recently saw a new build from Australia who had a fire place chimney he picked up for his build so they must be out there. http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/51/b...e-19433-2.html (Brooky Tom's 900mm build Brisbane)

Hi Russell

Fornobravo doesn't appear to ship to Australia responded to my email but thanks Russell, I think I have found what i'm looking for in US thanks to your link yesterday it led me elsewhere.

Aaaaarggghhhhhhh is pissing down here. Damn another lost day.

Russell any chance of getting a photo of your flue looking down onto the Brickwork am curious as to how you finished that, as I probably will follow your method of connection.

Nah Russell not that one[photo looking down the finished flue rather than up] have looked. But I worked it out. I was thinking you put another brick cap around then flue. Bit am guessing you dynabolted anchor plate too your cap and then cemented that to your chimney. How sturdy is it as you are hanging 4' of flue off something not very high. Does the flue wobble at all?

Can you explain that odd shaped brick cannot work out how and where you used it.?

Saved some of those photos so I can study your techniques.

Hey all i have heard it all now.

Found flue in US, $350US same as Russell [Utahbeehiver], now this will make you laugh $734US total cost [including Flue] to get it to Aus.

What a joke. One box, not that heavy so they want $384 freight costs.

Got to be cheaper freight than that available to this country. I mean 1 of - 48" flue 10" wide ext dimension, cap, anchor plate, storm collar, spark arrestor.

Hmmm they say its cheaper to buy OS, since when even the vendor was gob smacked.
