Automatic Minecraft Smelter / Furnace
Finally, as you can see that we have limited burning times and we can loose fuel if nothing is there to smelt. Not to worry folks! We have an interesting little machine to share with you.
So, yes you can automate this process so you don’t waste any time and resources.
Here’s how to do this..
- Add a Hooper on top of your Smelter this will hold the items that will go into the Furnace.
- Now, you can add another Hooper at the bottom as well. This will empty the Smelter as soon as the product is ready.
- Finally, you can also add a third hooper to add the fuel to your Smelter. So it doesn’t run out of fuel in the middle.
