How many MJs does a sawmill use?

Thermal Expansion Sawmill MJ

Best Answer Artsja , 07 April 2013 - 02:32 PM

The Sawmill uses a minimum of 0.5 MJ/t and a maximum of 2 MJ/t. You can actually see some of those statistics once you open the Sawmill GUI, but you're right, this information should be noted in the article. You could probably get away with a heated up Stirling Engine or a Hobbyist's Steam Engine at slower production speeds.

So I want to make a sawmill, but the wiki article doesn't say how many MJs it uses, so I'm not sure what kind of engine I need to power it.

If I were you, I'd just use a Stirling Engine initially. Just trial and error! :)

You could also test this on a Creative World.

Thanks, I had not built it yet and wanted to know if it was something I could power on site or needed to be hooked up to my energy network.
