    Hi, I am going to fit a woodburning stove into my fireplace in the next few
    days but I am having a few problems finding some fireproof board. The shop
    where I bought it has said that it is easy to find in any diy shop such as
    b&q but he didn't know the name of it. The board has to go around the flue
    up inside the chimney to stop any draught coming back down. Does anyone know
    of a suitable product? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    A metal lining on the old fire damper shelf will be just as good. A scrap piece
    of 1/8'' plate with a hole through it will also act as good draw damper for and
    old chimney flue. What's the reason for lining the old fire place anyway. Or
    is this a new built flue?

    Thanks for the replies. The stove has a 1m flue pipe that comes out of the
    top, this will be the only bit of flue pipe, sorry if I misled you
    BigWallop. All I need is the part that seals the chimney aroung the flue
    pipe. After the recomendation of the shop owner I thought that some type of
    fireboard would be easier to work with.

    Tydraig, thanks for the link. I will see what they have to offer.

    Ah ha !!! With you now. A piece of metal will ideal for this situation, and it
    doesn't need to be a huge thick thing. A collar made of sheet metal used in
    ducting systems is the ideal choice, as it's rust proof and easy to work.

    A piece of sheet metal cut to the size of the throat of the smoke box and sealed
    around with fire clay is what you need. Cut a hole through it to take the end
    of the flue pipe you have, and seal that round with fire clay as well. Sheet
    metal is easily cut with a decent set of tin sheers, so it's really a simple and
    cheap job do make a suitable collar for yourself.

    The most expensive part of the project will most likely be the fire clay, but
    you'll need to use that on any thing you fit inside the chimney anyway. An off
    cut from a scrappy that keeps old ducting material is the cheapest part, I would
    think. So the job should balance itself out on costs of parts.

    Have you also checked to see if the chimney needs a top cover to stop the wet
    weather getting in?

    Thanks for your help Bigwallop. I already have a job lot of fire cement from
    screwfix so I am sorted there. I also know a local scrap metal dealer just a
    few miles from here. It seems like it will be quite an easy job. Thanks
    again.
