Bellows are used with Firepits, Forges and Blast Furnaces so that they will reach hotter temperatures and heat up at twice the speed in exchange for consuming fuel twice as fast. Note: Bellows only affects how quickly the device itself heats up. Items heating up inside of the the device will heat up at the same rate regardless of if a bellows is used or not.
To activate the bellows, simply right click while targeting anywhere on the bellows. The block will animate and make a blowing sound while active. As long as the player is holding down right-click, the bellows will keep pumping.
When placed, the active side of the bellow (the side with a hole that blows air) faces away from the direction The Player is facing. In the case of a forge or a firepit the bellows must be placed so it blows over the top of the coals. Note: A crucible on top of the forge will not block the bellow's air. For a Blast Furnace, the bellows must be placed next to the Blast Furnace Block, and there must be a Tuyere inside the Blast Furnace for the bellows to work.
|Device||Fuel||Without Bellows||With Bellows|
|Firepit¹||Hickory||Bright Red||Yellow White***|
|Forge||Charcoal||Yellow White**||Brilliant White|
|Blast Furnace²||Charcoal||Yellow White**||Brilliant White|
¹ Hickory is the hottest burning firepit fuel, while Willow is the coldest. All other firepit fuels fit somewhere within this range.
² The Blast Furnace cannot get hot enough to smelt the ore inside without the use of a bellows.
