How do you use a quartz grindstone?

    So, I finally found some quartz and made a quartz grindstone. However, I neglected to find out how it actualy works. I just assumed that right clicking would activate it, but it just brings up the GUI. How do I work this thing?

    Don't you need one of those handcrank thingamabobs in the top of it?

    Or something?

    I'm just grasping at straws, really. I've never used the manual grindstone.

    Hand cranks? I remember seeing one of those while scrolling through NEI... I'll give it a try.

    Perfect job for a member of your turtle army.

    Or a deployer on a timer.

    Its pretty complicated, I'll give you that. I'll guide you through it.

    Steps:
    1. Click hand crank.

    You missed a step.

    Steps:
    1. Apply Hand crank.
    2. Click it.

    You have to do that first, crucial step, otherwise you just bring up the GUI. Pretty comparable to trying to turning on a fan before you plug the damn thing in.

    You forgot step 0: craft the hand crank.

    You can also use a turtle.

    I'm glad some people don't get rid of "exploits" or whatever you want to call it.

    Putting a computer together -> making it into a turtle. :p

    If you are talking turtles, I'd like to see this.
    Turtle gets items from the chest, goes to the grindstone, puts items into it, then whacks the handcrank until items are grinded, then takes them out and maybe smelts them in a furnace.
    If turtle is used just for whacking the crank, it's not very interesting. Not really an exploit, just a bit... dumb.

    People claim it's an exploit because the point of the grindstone was to provide free maceration while requiring time consumption/self work. I actually think the turtle thing is pretty crafty, but then again they say it's not fair because you can just copy/paste the turtle program. But this is going nowhere and I think it's mostly been settled.

    Seems like by the time you make a turtle and program it, you could just make a pulverizer. /shrug

    Meh, I just think that power in mods is for using it, and not for "I can grind items without any power even though it takes much more time to do so". That's not OP/non-OP thing, just logic...

    This is my line of thinking.

    If the grindstone were the only means of doing this, I'd see the merit. Buuut, I skip completely over the grindstone because by the point where I desperately need double ores, I usually have a macerator and a generator.
