Thompson and Anderson was started in 1973 by Russ Thompson and Andy Anderson as a supplier to Krista Associates of Portland, Maine, the original importer and distributor of Jotul stoves. At Thompson and Anderson we supply a high quality, heavy gauge stovepipe that is nearly a duplicate of how stovepipe would have been made 100 years ago.
The original stovepipe was slightly tapered from end to end so that the small end of one would slide about two inches into the next pipe. Over the years we have improved our pipe by shrinking the male (small) end onto a straight joint which allows the pipe to be cut to length while still maintaining our quality fit. The only variation from a truly handmade pipe of the early 1800's was that they were riveted instead of spot welded. Our two piece handcrafted elbows are stronger, leak resistant, as well as attractive. This thought for detail is carried through our entire line.
