Automatic Coke Oven ?

    Personally I would just use and Insertion pipe and make a loop with BC pipes.

    Also, I'm not sure why everyone is saying the stuff needs to go in the top, but I have a Coke Oven making Charcoal and I feed it wood from the side and pull out charcoal on another side. So I'm guessing BC pipes don't care about what side they're stuck on and will work fine on any side, just like with Forestry machines.

    btw, the outside of the "Mega Oven" is just Sandy Bricks from the looks of it, the cheaper and decorative version of the Coke Oven bricks. On the inside you can see how the Coke Ovens are inset 1 block into the ground (which are also Sandy Bricks from the looks of it). Or maybe a combination of full Sandy Bricks and facades ^^

    The mega oven is a 4x4 grid of ovens 2 tall. There is 1 block spacing between each oven. I had troubles with RP tubes putting the coal into the output slot in an older version when attached to the sides of the ovens. My old design, which is in a world that is gone now, was 30 ovens (the minimum to run a creosote powered 36HP boiler) with 3 blocks separating the ovens. I wanted to fit them all into one chunk this time and the 1 chunk separation makes it a 15x7x15 build which is not quite the same as my 16x6x16 buildings near by. I considered making the center line spacing 2 blocks to push it up to 16x16 but the centering would be screwy.
    The non-oven bricky blocks are mostly full Sandy Brick blocks with a few facades here and there to hide the ME cables. Most of the piping and wiring inside is exposed. The floor of the room is at the same level as the bottom layer of the ovens to shorten it a bit. There is a basement below the mega oven that also uses sandy brick blocks to keep the style going.
    A pair of routers with machine filters set to Coke Oven to push and pull coal and coke would work. Just stick some chests or other cheap machine between the ovens to make them all one set for the routers. THE hardest ways would be to use RP tubes or BC pipes since they like to get stuffed or loop or spit up. Routers and AE fill and do not get too full.
