Custom copper work is beyond me, but I did find a cap that might work here-> http://www.famcomfg.com/chimney-caps-1.html
Here's an updated model with a one piece sleeve, who knows it might help someone else.

Yes they are custom. The differents from your picture is the sleeve and base flashing is one peice on mine. The cap sits tigth to the top of the sleeve.

Thanks for the pic, lots of chimneys!

Are those caps custom made? Do they fasten to the sleeve, or the chimney pipe?

It's hard to tell if the commercial chimney caps I'm finding online will keep water out of the sleeve. I modeled an exaggerated chimney, based on what you suggested (picture attachedchimney cap

You can make a sleeve and flashing for the pipe. This would run all the way to the top of the pipe. See picture.

Is there a way of running insulated steel chimney pipe out through a slate roof without using sealant?

The chimneys I've found require sealant in the joint between the storm collar and the chimney, which keeps water from running down the chimney into the roof assembly.

Could the storm collar/chimney connection be safely soldered if both were stainless steel?

I'd like to avoid sealants if possible, and would appreciate any recommendations.

-Thanks for your help-
