Yep, this did it. THANK YOU!Put a hopper/chest combo below the furnace (place chest, point hopper into chest), then put another hopper/chest combo atop the furnace (place furnace atop previous hopper, point hopper #2 at top of furnace, place chest #2 atop hopper #2), and you now have a high-capacity smeltery.
A bit different than I seem to remember, but that WAS a while ago.
Now, on to playing with item transport....
