Mr Hilditch, Sir you are exactly backwards. The crimped end of the stove pipe is made to go down, If you look at all the stove installation instructions you well see that to be true, The reason is to keep creosote in the pipe. It is a liquid and well run down the pipe and back to the stove. If it's backwards the creosote well run down and out the pipe to the outside and make a big mess, You are thinking of smoke getting into the room from the joint but really that doesn't happen , The draw of the flue when the stove is running creates a low pressure area in the pipe and air is drawn into the pipe at the joint. Crimped end down well make a big mess. David
