That little chrome rod looks like it came from a popup valve.

1/4” diameter ejector pin from a plastic mould. That one’s maybe 10-12” long, we had them up to 36” at the last place I worked at. I have a couple in different lengths depending how I want to set up a stop.

Started on the actual gazebo roof yesterday. The roof had sagged so badly in the middle that it was in part being held up by the stove pipe.

Took the old pipe down, stripped the shingles off the four diagonals, and after doing some bracing, cut the four ‘triangles apart.

The collar I built is now going in the centre of the roof, and I’ll recut the ‘triangles’ accordingly. There’s some reframing that also will be done.

Another hurdle was finding some of the pieces for a mill stop.

I got the pieces drilled, and had 4 that I wanted to mill to the same size. During that process, I remembered how sticky the quill stop nut and thread were, so ended up taking that apart. After cleaning the rod and parts up, running a tap through both nuts, and reassembly, it’s now a one finger spin to thread it up or down.

So likely about 8-10 hours here and there to do a half hour or so of machine work.

That process of spending a bunch of time getting something fit to work with before actually doing any work sounds all too familiar. Can't say I ever minded too much, as I do like to fix things.

Pics from where I left off a couple days ago.

I hope to finish a lot of it up today, get the collar ties in, the hip rafters trimmed off, and a few other details. Need some bodies to help install the chimney, so temporarily on hold there.

Hoping to be able to fire again on the weekend though!

Got the new pipe in for the chimney Thurs night. Had a fire and get together Friday night to test it out.

The larger chimney with a straight run certainly helps with the draft.

The outer collar with the hangers for the rafters stayed cool to the touch, even when we had the fire going about as hot and large as we get it.

There’s still some more work to wrap up, some shingles to do etc. Hoping to get the shingles done in the next day or two.

Looks much improved from down here.
Probably a good place to keep your beer from freezing up.
