The Standard Wrench is used to rotate the orientation of machines in Galacticraft.
For example you can use it to rotate an Advanced Solar Panel to change the side the output is facing by simply right clicking a machine with the wrench in hand.
Be careful: using the Standard Wrench to pick up blocks may destroy the block without dropping it as an item to pick up.
In GC4, use hold down shift to rotate each face separately (see video below).
The list of machines which should rotate sides currently (as of build GC4 116) are:
- Electric Furnace
- Electric Arc Furnace
- Energy Storage Module
- Energy Storage Cluster
- Electric Compressor
- Circuit Fabricator
- Oxygen Storage Module
- Fuel Loader
Turning a machine so that the input or output is no longer connected may be an effective and easy way to temporarily disable that machine.
