..lost the stapler a month or so ago..right around the last time I cleaned the stove and pipes…oh, there it is right underneath the wire brush in the box. So simple (as I grit me teeth). Once the brushing was done I could not find the thin attachment for the shop-vac to get in the very back of the stove so I had to improvise with some pex tubing. Creosote buildup was minimal but I am not taking chances and I also wanted to time the operation while doing it solo. 1:10 with fabrication time..I think we can get it down to under 1/2 hour, although 4 ft of snow on the roof does tend to slow things down so I should not get too confident, hehe..
