The Millstone is a more basic equivalent of the Crushing Wheels, capable of applying milling recipes to any items inserted from above. A Millstone can be powered by a shaft from below or by a cogwheel from the side.

There are two ways to insert items into a Millstone:

  • Dropping items on top of it: anything that can be processed will be picked up if the input buffer is empty.
  • Hoppers, Funnels, Transposers, and other inserters can directly feed it items from any side.

A Millstone will take some time to process inserted ingredients and will show particles while it is working. Once finished, the Millstone will not drop or output the result by itself, but there are two ways to remove processed items:

  • Right-clicking the Millstone with an empty hand: this will manually pick up everything in the output buffer.
  • Hoppers, Extractors, Transposers, and other exporters can pull items out of the output buffer from any side.


Millstones and Crushing Wheels can apply the following recipes to inserted items:
