    Doesn't look like the structural support held up very good either.
    Nothing is magic, it works or doesn't work for a reason.

    Impressed. Never would have thought that drier flex could handle 300+ degrees. Is that folded lead or something it crawls into? Or round pipe rolled up?

    It is a makeshift 6-4 reducer out of some sort of scrap metal

    My favourite is the polyester twine that was formerly supporting it.
    What's worse, two small dips, or this? Lol
    I'll bet the flow restriction in that flex compensates for the oversized chimney too
