All I have seen and mine use the normal galv. They do have some that is black and it made for free standing stoves/fire places but really they are more for looks I think because they are exposed in the room. They might be painted with a high temp paint maybe but do not think I have seen anyone use them? We do not care how they look HA HA.

You will need this to connect to your incoming duct from your heater. I am guessing that 8" will be what will slide over the inter heat chamber on the one you just bought? You need to check the size. This piece will slide into your oven and your pipe will connect to it on the outside and then bend the fingers over to secure it to the inside. Use pop rivets are small self tappers.

You will need the same thing for your vent but only 4" so at least you know what it is called.

This is needed also. It will open and close as the heater turns on and off and need to be made out of galvanized and not aluminum. In time the hinge will ware out so install it so you can replace it easy. One with a screen would not be needed. It also helps keep stray animals out of your oven. They also make them for the roof depending on how you are going to exhaust it.

If you are going to run your vent through a combustible wall you need a pipe like this. Even going through steel siding it will help keep the steel for changing color. It is really made for installing gas water and going through siding or a roof. Your 4" pipe will fit on the inside and the out wall will give it some air space. The heat going out of your oven is very hot.

That should cover your needs with what you need to be asking for.

I did use some 3" fiberglass wrap that is used mainly for boat motor headers and pipe to help with heat. Also good if something was to fall oven on the pipe going into your oven. Now that pipe gets super hot. I also wrapped the exhaust just to cut down on heat in my bay where all my ovens are located. Helps a little I guess. Any place that deals with inboard boat motors should have it? It is nice and thick and not the same thickness as guys would use on motorcycle pipes and car headers.

thank you again duke
today i started stripping the parts that i dont need from the heater mainly the push button
now from the push button was the t/c that warms and lets you release the button
from this there were 2 wires that connect to the control board
do i bridge these or leave them alone as the t/c is no longer connected

i have noticed there looks as if there is another t/c on the back plate in the burner looks like one you get on the inside of a cooker it is round with 2 wires is this the one that will need to be wired to stop it cutting out
thanks for all the info duke i keep going back to earlier posts great for reference :D

Can't really help you much on the heater you have. But on that one the high limit switch is the one I had to straight wire because where I have my oven and it over 90 out side then my heater shut down on me. As I said before and that even after I posted that info no one said they had to do the same. But I had to straight wire it. If your oven is in a more open space then it can be left as is. I have no idea of where your oven will be and how much air space will be around it and what your high temps are where you live. You can straight wire it if you wish, Your call.

You can't really test every thing until you install it in your new oven as to what you might have to do. So do not make any perm connects it until you have had a chance to test it all out and that includes using the new PID and TC to control it.

That is all I can advise on at this point.

Just in case it comes up again... I have never seen a McMaster location in my life... Dallas Area has none for sure. But we have Fastenal and Grainger locally if you can't find it anywhere else...they're both just super expensive.
