Wood stove pipe: 6" oval to 6" round?

Pretty much says it. My stove has an oval outlet. I haven't found anywhere in my area that sells a oval-to-round adapter. Is there any reason that round pipe can't be smashed down to fit the oval outlet?

I believe it needs to go inside the outlet so's to allow any flowing creasote to go into the stove and not leak down the outside of the pipes. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah, the 6" round will form into the right size oval. And it should go inside for the reason you gave.

The stove-pipe I have is pretty soft and easy to mangle into round or oval.

When you buy stove-pipe, each section usually comes shaped like a big 'C', once home you attach the opposite sides together in that latch-edge they have. While doing this they are rarely round.

Is a little pricey, but should work for you.

Your round pipe will bend into the oval, and yes it should go on the inside of the stove, but they don`t. At least mine won`t , it fits on the outside of the stove flang. I have not had any creasote run down the stove, but I burn only dry wood, and have a rain cap on the pipe. > Thanks Marc

If you run it on the inside be certain to caulk around it with furnace cement. Don't want carbon monoxide leaking out after the fire burns down so much that you are not sucking in air around the fitting.

Outside on mine. Seems odd but it fit and it's working. All the rest of the pipe fit together normally. Now need to figure out the gasket situation.
