Grindr Mod

Grindr Mod for Minecraft 1.15.2/1.14.4 is a simple, modular and configurable grindstone powered by furnace fuel to produce dust from ores.

In order to use the grinder, you will need to craft a grinder:

You will also need a grindstone to attach to it. The cheapest of these to create is a stone grindstone:

There are a variety of other grindstones:

Each grindstone type has associated stats (see the Grindstones configuration section below) which are displayed in the tooltip. 100% of either speed or result means that it will take the default time and produce the default output amount. A modifier with a negative will take longer to process (or have a chance not to produce anything), while a modifier with a positive value will process faster and have a chance to produce more.

  • Once you have placed the grinder, simply right-click it with the grindstone in hand to attach it.
  • You can detach grindstones by sneak-right-clicking with an empty hand.
  • The grinder will not function without a grindstone, although any furnace fuel in the process of being burned will still tick down.
  • Sides for automation are identical to a furnace, blast furnace, smoker, etc.
  • JEI integration is available by default, if JEI is installed.


Data Packs

It can be configured with data packs using an ore tag or other ingredient. It also introduces a serializer for furnace recipes that allows specifying the output as the first item of a tag. By default, all of these recipes use the Forge conditional wrapper to ensure that the input or output tag aren’t empty.

Hiding Dusts

  • By default, the mod comes with the following dusts linked to their associated tags: iron, gold, silver, tin, copper, nickel, lead, aluminum, zinc, platinum, mercury/quicksilver, uranium, bismuth and neptunium.
  • However, the recipes for creating these (and for smelting them into their resulting ingots) are locked behind Forge conditionals that ensure the relevant “forge:ores/tin”, etc, tags contain items.
  • You can hide unused dusts in your pack in the dust_settings section of the common configuration file.

Hiding Grindstones

Currently it is not possible to hide the non-vanilla grindstones, although the recipes for these are conditional.


By default (and currently not extensible), there are 9 grindstones, four of them for each of the stone types (stone, diorite, granite and andesite), iron, gold, diamond, obsidian and emerald. Each type of grindstone gives a bonus (positive or negative) to processing speed and output. These can be configured in the common configuration file under the grindstone_settings section.

In addition to the default grindstones, there are 10 additional grindstones for each of the types of ores that can be processed: aluminum, copper, nickel, lead, silver, platinum, mercury (or quicksilver), zinc, bismuth, uranium and neptunium. These have default configurations that can be modified in the same way as the defaults. The recipes for them are conditional based on the ore-tag associated with them not being empty, although they will show up in creative tabs and JEI.

result_modifier should be a positive floating-point number above 1 if you wish to retain the guaranteed output. For example, 1.4 will be equivalent to 140% output — a guaranteed dust and then a 40% chance to get a second dust. In contrast, 0.5 means that there’s only a 50% chance per ore processed that a dust will be produced.

speed_modifier should be a positive floating-point number below 1 if you wish to increase the speed (or decrease the time it takes) of ore processing. For example, 0.7 will be equivalent to 70%, or a 30% reduction in the processing time. You can also use a floating-point number above 1 to make processing take longer. For example, 1.5 will be a 150% modification: the base processing time plus half again.
