MDF: v1.21

The metallurgist is a furnace that allows the creation of alloys from base metals. While the weapons-grade alloys can be time-consuming to produce, their abilities are superior to the unalloyed forms. Other metals are important for other industries, such as steam power and precision technology. Unless it is the Magma Metallurgist, all reactions require 1 fuel. Every reaction outputs the same number of bars as were inputted.

As with all magma furnaces, you can fill magma bottles at the magma metallurgist. These are used in the spawn location to create liquid magma, for moats or traps.

Making alloys produces slag, but melting them does not.

You can also melt down all alloys into their component metals.
