...or the fellow using those tools lost his balance and took that one long step to terra firma that turned out to be his last one.

Not thread drift since chimney tops are up, this cap is made to keep water not drain it.

I once inspected a 1928 Tudor in Boston area and found a collapsed flue-tile liner (from looking up in the clean-out at the basement). I took a photo.. and 'you need a new liner' etc. Seller had the work done, buyer hired me to 'check the new liner'.. I did the same thing.. looked up the clean-out, found a torn-apart-to-pieces (spirally) new metal liner.  "you need it re-done".   It was re-done. I go back, now see a good liner from clean-out, but to get to the top, it meant erecting a 21' LG and carrying up a 13' LG to make it to the top (it was actually very easy but a pain). I get to the top---the 'tube' is now just 'cut and ended above the cap/wash'.. .no 'cap' on it, etc. "Fix it right". They fix it. I go back.. same drill with the 2 ladders...   this time.. a text-book job.... 

 

...and the chimney-company-owner's cell phone left up there...     Oy...  Four trips just to make sure this was done right...
