Not sure if this is a wall tent :dunno: tip/trick or just a cheap skate HACK.

6" flue from 55 Gallon wood stove in tent.
I plan on putting a chimney brush in the top most section of pipe.
IMO it should act as a pretty good spark arrestor without inhibiting flow...

thoughts???

AND if the stack needs cleaning.... well I'm one step closer than most :)

I think this will work too well, depending on what your burning, you'll more than likely plug that sucker up.  You'll most likely see some draft issues as well.

If you need one, just hose clamp a piece of SS 1/4" mesh on the end of the pipe.  Simple and effective, won't clog up very easily, and easy to clean when/if it does.

Like others have said I think that will clog for sure.  Of course my spark arrestor plugs also.  I just think that one will clog faster and also create lack of draft issues as mentioned above.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Thank you all for the great comments!!
I am going to do a test burn this weekend to check the up-draft and clogging... as best I can
Its not going to be -3 in WA this weekend... and I do not have the hunt area logs to burn :)

I am very worried about sparks getting out and landing on the tent. My tent <See restoration post here https://hunting-washington.com/smf/index.php/topic,240936.0.html> is old enough, I don't need any more holes in it.
I know that "no sparks" means a tight mesh/low draft....

I feel like there is a trade off, or happy medium that will come out of this

What are you guys using for floors? I need to replace the tarp Iíve been using, and was wondering if there is something quieter and lays flatter.

My #1 tent came with a poly floor that snaps in.

My #2 tent came with a heavy poly floor.

I put a regular tarp under both keeps them cleaner.

I have a coupe four foot runner mats I throw down in the traffic area.

In the cook shack we use straw to keep the dust down.

Under the wood stove we use one of those oil drip pans for you garage. We write on the drip pan every where the tent was set up and the year.

Tarp and then a big leftover piece of carpet from when we recarpeted the house. So nice to step into that in the middle of the night instead of a cold trap or canvas.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

I use bath and shower mats I front of my tent door and along next to my cot.
Sure make those cold mornings a lot mor pleasant.

FAIL :bash: :bdid:
Ran the stove this weekend for only a couple of hours. Dry Cedar to test the spark arrestor function of the cleaner. (That part worked AMAZING)...
But it also caught EVERYTHING... so I can see how it would clog for sure after many hours of sustained use.

PLAN B: wire mesh insert like others have used
