The Chemistry Bench is an advanced crafting station that functions as an upgrade to the Mortar and Pestle, capable of efficiently making refined batches of goods far quicker than its primitive-tier counterpart.

Usage[edit | edit source]

As the industrial upgrade to the Mortar and Pestle, it is capable of producing refined recipes in bulk, at 2/3 the normal cost.

Since the Chemistry Bench consumes 4 times the materials in a single use, and produces 6 times the materials, and it is 2 times faster to craft in the Chemistry Bench than the mortar and pestle, the Chemistry Bench produces materials at 12 times the rate of the Mortar and Pestle.

For example, crafting 100 Gunpowder in a Mortar and Pestle will require 100 Charcoal and 100 Sparkpowder, and take exactly 1 minute and 40 seconds to craft. In the Chemistry Bench, 100 Charcoal and Sparkpowder will craft 150 Gunpowder, in 12.5 seconds.

Due to its heightened functionality, it requires both a connection to an active power grid and a supply of Gasoline to operate.
