How much of a risk is there usually in going from 7" stove pipe to 6". It doesn't seem to me to be that huge of a difference that it would affect the draft drastically as to cause problems. I really don't want to have to create a new chimney at 7" to accommodate and this 7" to 6" reducer would fit the bill perfectly but I also don't want to create problems either and am willing to go 7" all the way if required.

Answer:It is always best to keep the diameter of vent pipe the same as the collar on the appliance. Reducing from 7" to 6" will not have catastrophic effects. But, it is possible that the reduction in vent diameter could have adverse affects on draft. This would greatly depend on the stove's capabilities and your personal burn habits.

I have a wood stove with a 6 5/8" vent pipe. Which collar do I need for a 6" male end pipe?

Will this piece fit a 7" OD going to a 6" ID wood stove pipe box in the ceiling? If not, what size do I need?

Answer:Because of the tapered fit of this adapter, it will indeed accommodate the transition between your 6 and 7 inch piping.

I am putting in a stove that has a 7 inch collar ( interior diameter). This stove will be replacing my other stove which had a 6 inch collar and matching 6 inch( interior diameter) double walled stove pipe. My question: is this reducer I would need or is there such a thing as a male to male reducer. Also is this reducer compatible with double wall pipe?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 6, 2012
Answer:While this reducer is not double walled, it can be made to work in a double walled application. It may require some modification to work properly however. Is the downward end of your double walled stovepipe male or female? Please advise at your convenience.
