I recently saw a stainless steel woodburner made in Sweden that had a 8" cap on the fron just as you do. The cap slide off to feed wood into the stove.

This weekend we went to McLendon's Hardware..known for its assortment of just about everything under the sun,even stove pipe.They had a super nice shiny 6X18" piece of pipe..100% stainless..and caps probably to fit it.The pipe was $40 by itself.
They also had some chimney adapters for probably pole buildings with metal roofs that were cut-a-way silicone for the cone and the bottom end had a thin aluminum over silicone colllar that could be glued down to the roofing and formed over most ridges in the roofing and screwed in place through the metal strip.The prices were $20-50 with sizes about 10" in diameter at the base to about 18".
McLendon's is like going to a museum of hardware :shock: ..unfortunately they didn't have the one thing I was looking for,some 1/4x20 black plastic ball knobs about 1/2 to 3/4" in diameter... :cry:
it's probably my fault..years ago I pretty much bought out most of the local suppliers of the knobs when I was building large format cameras... :roll: ..no one seems to have restocked... :evil:

McLendon's will surely have the 2" DS..they've got all the parts!90 degree elbows,dropouts,and even 45 degree elbows.I was thinking of maybe buying a couple 45s to go straight out the chimney adapter at 45 degrees then straight up once outside so the angel food cone would be right in line with the chimney...
I wanted to clip the chimney to the center pole of the tent,follow that up..then 45 out the stack and back to straight up again..should work great with some rounded W style clamps that go around the two different pipes(each end of the "U-U" rounded and matching the diameters of the pipes and a bolt wingnut in between to tighten to the two pipes)...
Keep in mind that a person only needs ONE CHIMNEY or DS for ALL your stoves..I already have one! ;)

This is a very cool idea. I will be watching the work in progress and all the mods.

Zelph..Did you hit Lowes today to check out the Ts?..The cap may not need anything because it does slide on quite a ways.I'd be tempted to "peen"(out) 2 bumps(opposite sides) on the T pipe end.. and two matching ones on the cap(out) to "snap" closed..should be enough.How simple would that be! :roll:

I made it to Lowes today. I eventually found two 8" black stove pipe "tee" I spent a good half hour piecing together the end caps to the t's. I also did the galvanized t's also to get a feel of the material strength. Black is the way I would go. It would have cost me $44.00 + tax to walk out the door with the pieces. I opted not to. I think I can find something better. I went into a hispanic fast food joint yesterday. I the mens room there was a stainless steel waste basket. It was square at the top with a lid that was activated by a foot peddle. The peddle moved 2 arms, one each side of the container, to open and close it. It was the perfect size for a stove :D It looked as if it was a vintage medical receptical, heavy gauge material. I almost went looking for the store manager to ask if they would sell it. :lol:

I would definitively recommend the 8" Tee as a basic starting point for a wood stove.
