How can I reuse or recycle a section of metal chimney liner?
As I mentioned the other week, we had a woodburning stove fitted a few weeks ago. Because of some previous thoughtless building work, the chimney stacks are damaged – smoke leaking all over the place – so we had to have them properly lined.
The liner is a double skinned metal tube that is dropped down the chimney and attached at the bottom to the stove’s fluepipe. It’s also blooming expensive – and the fitters left the end-of-roll offcuts with us. We’ve got one piece about a metre/yard long and about 18cm/7″ in diameter, and a second slightly smaller piece (in both length and diameter).
What can I do with those leftover bits?
My first thought was the old reusing favourite – plant pots in the garden. We’ve got some old chimney tops already (left by the previous owners, currently home to my garlic) so it could be a bit of a theme. But that seems to be a bit of a waste of their potential – another thought I had was to save one of them to use when we finally get around to making a rocket stove.
Any other suggestions?
