I have a square 25 foot clay-lined wood stove chimney (6.5" x 7"). I am shopping for a brush and rod combo. I prefer torque lock connectors that are flat (not round) and I am considering a chain whip. This is for individual, residential use so I'm looking for mid-level quality. What would you suggest?
I need a tool to bore out my existing chimney clay liner in order for my new stainless flex liner to fit. Is there a tool you sell that would do the job? it doesn't need to take much material off but 1/4 or 3/8 should be enough to get my new liner in.

The required tool for your job will be a product such as the ProKleen Small Tile Breaker with TLC Connector. Used in conjunction with steel button lock rods, the tile breaker has an eccentric orbit that will cause it to spin randomly, breaking the tiles and allowing space to install a liner. There is not a product on the market that is designed to shave off material without damaging the tiles.
