    I am currently building a hot tent...getting close to being done with it.

    I basically followed this guys instructions:

    Now the part im on is installing the stove jack...I'd like to avoid sewing...but if thats the best bet maybe I need do that...but i've heard suggestions that this might work to glue it in...

    If glue(epoxy or whatever) is really not a good way to do a stove jack install, I may have to seek sewing assistance...but i really would try to get it done on my own :D

    With Canvas, I use two sheets, of SheetMetal, one connected to the Metal Stove Jack, on Top, and a second, the same size that sandwiches the Canvas, in between, but back 6" so it doesn't catch fire from the Heat of the Stove Pipe. I also use Insulated Stove Pipe, to minimize the Heat, that will be transferred....

    interesting never heard of using stove jack like that. I am currently trying to install this one on a plastic heavy duty tarp you buy at hardware stores. Hence the interest in epoxying or glueing it in.
