Placement and UseEdit
Place the Casting Basin under the Seared Faucet on the Smeltery Drain. When the metal has been liquefied, right-click the Faucet to pour the metal into the Casting Basin. After it cools, you will have a solid block of that metal.
The basin holds 9 ingots of metal, which equates to 4.5 blocks of raw ore. If you place a Liquiduct under a casting basin (powered, with lever to activate) that is only partially filled, you can route the liquiduct back to the Smeltery drain (remove faucet) and put the liquid metal back into the smeltery again.
Placing a hopper under the Casting Basin will allow the automated removal of cooled blocks from the Casting Basin.
The casting basin is also used to make Brownstone blocks, by pouring molten tin over gravel. To do this, first right-click with gravel in hand to place it into the basin, then right-click the faucet.
