What is the best way to repair the stove jack. I believe, I tore it putting the stove pipe in.
I do not want the stove pipe to get too close to the tipi's nylon (melt down). If I sew it up, I think nylon thread will melt. What other options do I have?
Here is a picture of the damage.

Ken--

Put some sturdy steel staples in it. And always be sure you put the stovepipe top bolt facing INSIDE the stovepipe.

Ken, you might try some high temp adhesive. They sell it at stove shops. Scott

muffler repair tape?

or unravel a piece of fiberglass cloth and sew it?

It is probably cheaper to send it in and fix it right, but if time is an issue.

Let us know what you did and if it works, may be something to add to the gear emergency repair kit.

I don't think I'd worry about it.

Stitch it up with some nomex kevlar or spectra thread

The knife edge of the new stovepipe will make a slice like that with zero effort too. I make an effort to spin the pipe 'backwards' a bit whenever I slide it through the port now.
