I've moved the Bailey into place and am building a roof. I need to build a exhaust port of some sort to go through the roof. I rejected the idea of purchasing $1000 of insulated pipe, flashing, etc from Burleson's, and John Britt suggested some sort of hood that doesn't touch the chimney, but can direct the heat through the roof. The kiln has an optional fume hood (top piece in picture with "Bailey" on both ends) which was probably necessary when it was inside, but probably not in the kiln's current location.
How about turning the hood around and raising it above the kiln with some sort of angle iron or something so that the exhaust hole is above the chimney? Since I have absolutely no idea what I am doing, this could be the stupidest idea ever or perhaps I have stumbled onto a clever solution. Any thoughts?
