Hello,
The exhaust on the stove is 6" outside diameter and 5 5/8" inside. I have 6" snap together stove pipe that will not go over the stove and the crimped end is way too big. Neither end of the stove pipe appears to fit. Please explain what I need to do. Thank you!

What kind of stove is that outlet attached to?

Ohh Crap, you got one of those reject flu collars! :shock:

Just teasing mate :lol: The flu collar is 6" outside to outside (that's right), it may appear that your 6inch stove pipe simply cant fit over it :cry: ... but it does!
a couple things to do... get some emory cloth or steel wool or even your kitchen scotch brite pad and make extra sure the outside of that flu collar is smooth as a babys azz before trying to get the pipe over it.
Make sure when your trying to get the pipe over it that your feading it on perfectly strait on (no coming from an angle), wipe the outside of the flu collar with a rag and veggie oil to get every lil piece of dust of it, you may need to squeeze on the pipe a lil here or their as your trying to get it on... once you get it.... you got it! after its on you will think (OMG, I don't need to put a screw in this at all because its going nowhere :shock: ... put the screws in! and hope you have a removable baffle or clean out Tee!)

If you are goint to go straight out the back into a chimney you need one of these http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?partNumber=36 ... &cId=PDIO1 its basicly a adapter the larger end's ID is the same as the OD of a standard single wall black pipe. If you are going to go up right off the back of the stove use either a elbow or a "T" fitting.

My combustioneer has that type of flue collar on it I put a "T" fitting on it and a large SS hoseclamp to hold it tight.

If none of the above work, try putting the elbow or tee or whatever in the oven at 300 for ten minutes and then slide it on, eezy ,peezy . Just remember the oven mitts :P

It appears that the connector from Lowes will fit. Where do you suggest using the hose clamp? Where the Fitting fits over the stove flange? That would be easier than trying to drill thru that thick cast.

On my Combustioneer I put the "T" over the collar and used the hose clamp just like I would any other tube, except I had to really tighten it down to get it to clamp good.
