This was requested a while back, and last week I finally got around to making it. Basically this is a modded object that will cut your gems and smelt your metal ores, and also enlarge them on demand.

It can not, however, enlarge your space rocks. Trying to do so may result in an undesirable outcome and I take no responsibility for any damage or loss of those rocks You are very welcome to try though, just save your game first if you love your space rocks. No, it won't cause a BFBVFS, it's just a small "feature" I added for fun.

It's cloned from the fortune cookie maker, so the animation is a bit off. But let's just pretend the machine needs to be fed to process our gems and metals It won't have any animation if you don't have WA.

It's available in the catalog under Misc Appliances and it costs §50,000. All types of cuts are available (provided you have the required EPs installed), including "Random". The machine will also produce a pile of gem dust for every gem cut.

There's also a new experimental feature I've just added, transfiguration. It basically uses the game's code, but only for rock/gem/metal. You can put less than 8 things in and it'd still do the transfiguration.

Also, due to popular demand lately, I added a custom icon so you can find it in the catalog easily. It may be not too pretty, but it holds a special meaning to me so do not complain

Compatibility: 1.50 and up.
