    For sure. The old rule of thumb when building is: Decide how much you will need, then double it. You will then have half enough.

    Nice find!
    I have an old english tin flue pan (3x5) that has about 2" deep flues. It has lots of pin holes, but I still use it when I have an open house to help explain what a flue pan is.
