Stove pipe secrets

The first fire will need to wait till we finish sealing up the chimney which is contingent on nice weather for the cement to cure right.

One of these days I'll figure out the secret to connecting a piece of stove pipe to itself. I'm not sure if it's my technique or a weak design, but something tells me there's a trick to snapping them together that must be easier than the round about way I've been doing it.
