Tinkers’ Construct

Tinkers’ Construct Mod is a mod about putting tools together in a wide variety of ways, then modifying them until they turn into something else. The tools never disappear and can be named and changed to your heart’s desire. Once you make them, they’re yours forever. Many different materials can be used to make your tools.

Tinkers' Construct Mod


To get started you need a few tables and a place to put your patterns.


Be sure to put the pattern chest by the part builder, as you can access them together. Use the Stencil Table to craft the patterns, and craft tool parts from them using the Part Builder. The part builder also displays information about the material used.


Next step is the Tool Station, where  you build, modify, and repair tools like so.


The next step is to build a Smeltery, so you can process metals and use them for tool parts as well. All you need is some gravel, sand and clay.



You can even automate your Smeltery. There’s some new friends included as well.


The mod also brings a few new things to the world, like these fellows here.
