Measure the distance between the dryer output and the vent hole to the outside and note how much straight metal duct you need. Determine how many turns you need to make with the rigid metal duct to decide how many elbow joints to buy the most direct route is always best. However you must use a curved elbow joint where the duct connects to the dryer and another where it connects to the outside vent. If the top dryer isnt sitting in front of the outside vent you may also need an elbow vent to turn the duct to the side.
Slide one elbow joint on the top dryer output and one on the outside vent use the solid end of the joint instead of the crimped end. Measure the distance in between. Deduct the size of an elbow joint if you need to add another corner in duct design to reach the outside vent.
Put on heavy gloves. Cut the straight metal duct to the sizes necessary to fit between the elbow joints using tin snips. Ideally there would only be one section of duct leading from the dryer to the outside vent.
