Stainless

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

Since removing the insert usually is a fair amount of work,, I'd use stainless so I didn't have to replace the flue pipe as often..

Are you sure it is only 8 by 8? Most fireplaces have larger flues.
Use a 6" round to 7" oval appliance adapter and run oval into the first tile, usually 4-5 feet.
The oval will get you past the damper with ease.
Damper sealing kits make that part easy also, just glue and screw.

Please don't type in all caps.. this is considered YELLING at us !! :)

I'd spend the money on the Stainless.. Coal ash, fly ash etc is pretty corrosive.. plain steel will corrode enough in one year that it would have holes in it.. Stainless should last several years.. it is more money, but usually it is money well spent,, you actually get more years of use per dollar with the Stainless compared to regular steel.

If your chimney is inside the building structure and the flue tiles sound you do not need to go all the way with the stainless liner.
4-5 feet of stainless liner will get you past most smoke chambers and into the tiled flue and that is all you need for liner.
Now you do have to seal off the chimney so you do not back draft the nasties into the house but that is another project.
Looks a bit like the cap lock got hit!

this tile is 11 3/4 x 11 1/2 od. its around 5 foot from the heater to the tile. I was told theres a cap that fits into the tile then the 6 inch pipe from the heater connects into that. Its kind of tite because I want to screw that pipe in with screws. This wood insert had no flu pipe conected.
