That's true. In my morning haze I forgot to explain that the insulated pipe inside the room was to allow the stove to be placed closer to the wall if that was desired. I seem to remember reading somewhere that single-wall pipe should be at least 3 feet away from a combustible wall. Depending on the design of the stove, sometimes that would put the stove way out in the room. For maximum efficiency, single wall pipe should be used.

Only heat with wood 6 cords per year 10 if I run wood furnace . Cold in Maine !!!!! Got enough wood on own land for 4 to 5 winters but I still buy it leaving standing trees as my wood stash . Down side takes gas to run chainsaws be a hell of a lot of work by hand .

the common set-back for single wall pipe is three pipe diameters

Fastest way? One of these.....

Seriously- bit of dry, finely split wood, twist of paper. Here is the South fire starters were traditionally "light wood knots"- the resinous knot of a pine tree. Burns like solidified gasoline.

Construction waste (cut-offs from 2X4's etc.) as long as it is not painted. The dryer the better and the more sap the better. That and newspaper. Thats how I do it now. But I can buils one in the boonies with dry pine needles and strips of bark if need be.

yes I use news paper, I guess my wood is to moist or something because it takes a lot of paper to get it going. One of these days I am going to install a small gas line and use that as a started. My dad did that when I was a kid.

Ray Ray- if the wood is damp, you will use heat from the paper to drive off the moisture as steam before you can get the wood up to ignition temp.

Assuming you do not have access to a forest of bits of dry, resinous pine or fir, try this- Snag one of the bigger artificial fireplace logs. Grocer, hardware store, etc. Lay on the ground (wrapped) and whack in half with axe. Then whack each half in half. You now have 4 quick lighters- each will burn for about 30 minutes.

Allows you to avoid the temptation to use kerosene, gasoline, or charcoal lighter fluid- which is a good way to find out how good your homeowner's insurance is, how good your medical insurance is, etc.

As far as construction scrap- good stuff- EXCEPT stay away from pressure treated lumber. The treatment that kills bugs and fungi is really not good for Ray Rays. Some contained copper, chromium and arsenic- newer is a quatenary copper or copper boron mix.
