Thanks Spott, We're going to another machine shop tomorrow. If they can't do it, we're just going to run new smaller ductwork through the walls. This is taking too much time.

It wouldn't be...

Spott,

How did you want me to tie the 8" oval into the 12" oval that I have? Just that custom made elbow, right? Or was you thinking of me replacing the stuff in the wall with a smaller piece? ...

Spott,

Thanks again for the advice. I don't want to overthink it. Only the master bedroom has the 12" x 4" oval. The bathroom upstairs just has a 6" round ductwork. The previous owners ran...

Spott,

I feel like we're making progress now. For some reason, earlier on, I thought someone said the stuff in the walls was called wall stack and that's why I had been referring to it as a wall...

Spott,

Here's some pictures of what I've been calling the wall stack, with a tape measure there so you can see that it's 12" x roughly 4".

Thanks Spott,

Yeah, it is hard because I don't really know all the terms, I'm slowly learning, but that's a problem, and on top of that, with the chimney and venting for the furnace and hot water...

I was just thinking a bit more. It's a bit hard because we have the newborn and I don't have long time stretches to work on this, just little bits of time. Anyway, the wall stack in the basement...

Furd,

You're both right about it being a mickey mouse installation. Someone just jerry rigged some parts to tie the "newer" furnace into the older ductwork.

The house was built in 1940. Back...

Spott,

Just so we're clear, there's only the oval ductwork in the wall there. They just cut a "square" out of the load bearing beam, because the wall stack just happened to end up on one. ...
