I bought a wood burning stove this weekend, it is this one:

It has a 6" flute & all Home depot seems to have is 5"

I'm in the cleveland ohio area, so we have a variety of places to go, just not sure who would have the pipe & parts to attach it to the room/exterior wall etc.

Well, this is a coal forum & we don't know much about wood, but we help anyone we can! Surely 6" pipe is the most common size on Earth. Any hardware store should have it along with elbows & stuff. Make a few phone calls.

Make sure you follow the guidelines for proper clearances. Generally 36" from any combustible for the stove and 24" for the stove pipe. you MUST use proper care where the stove pipe goes through a wall or ceiling, that is, either brick in a 30 inch square with a 6" hole in the middle, or some sort of metal-bestus type pipe made for the purpose. Of course a proper non combustible pad under it too.

I'd return that sucker to ACE before you burn it. That stove is, well how to say this without hurting anyones feelings, a crappy stove. I would consider that stove for a hunting cabin but never for in your home. Find a good used coal stove for $300.00 and you will thank us later. I promise.

I realize coal is better overall, but during a SHTF scenario it is not renewable like wood is. Not only is budget a serious issue right now, this stove I bought was specifically just for that, SHTF to keep warm, boil water & cook food. It's not a fancy one like everyone else here has, but it will do the job that it is needed for.

I paid $140 out the door for the stove & will probably have $75 or so in parts, so for around $200 I have a renewable heating source for a SHTF scenario.

I prefer to buy my stovepipe from a HVAC supply house. It's a few more dollars but you get a quality commercial product.
