The Quern is a multipurpose functional block that can be operated by hand or automated using windmills, and is used to grind grains, stones, and minerals into powdered form.

Creation

A Quern can only made from suitable rock types which include granite, andesite, peridotite, and basalt in the crafting grid. For information on relieving rock used to build the quern, see the rock page.

Usage/Operation

  • Loading: Right click on the bottom portion or base of the quern to access the GUI. Insert the item to grind in the input slot (left).
  • Operation: Hold right mouse button while hovering over the top portion of the quern to begin the grinding process.
  • Collecting Products: Over time the input will be ground into its processed form, which will appear in the output slot (right) and can be transferred.

Special: If the output slot is unable to hold the product (because it is full), the quern will eject the product to one of the sides, unless the chosen is blocked.

Mechanical power

Querns can be powered by windmills to partially automate grinding, for more info see mechanical power.

Querns do stack and can be transported in player inventory, or stored in containers. The quern, though made of stone, does not require a tool to pick up. To collect a quern, break (left mouse button) with bare hands or any other tool, and collect.
