If you put some useless items in the Recycler and apply power to it, it has a 12.5%(1 in 8) chance that it will produce some scrap.
Scrap can be used to craft Scrap Boxes, which contain random items. It is surprisingly flamable and can be burnt in a Generator for 870 total Eu. Alternatively, scrap can be placed in a Mass Fabricator to amplify the fabrication process, making it six times more efficient!
- A good way of producing items to be recycled into scrap is to use a handsaw on a low EMC value item, such as cobblestone, as the resulting microblocks can also be recycled at an equal rate to the original block. However, this will use the duablitiy of the hand saw and requires more EMC than if you used a 1 EMC block.
- Also Scrap can be used for fuel for a furnace to smelt 1.75 items.
- If a Cobblestone generator is used to fuel the recycler , an Automatic Crafting Table (NOT MKII) can be used to double the items for the recycler at no cost of durablitiy on handsaws.
