Quoted from "seregheru"
All the tiny piles have recipes that accept 9 piles and emit a full pile. You dont need to craft them together for processing. You can just take a GT Hopper, set it to 9 with the Screwdriver and place it next to the Machine that you want to process the ores in.
Sorry, I wasn't completely clear. I'm not talking about processing 9 tiny refined ores as though it was one whole one.
I'm talking about recipes that require regular dusts (i.e. exactly 1 "unit", rather than 11/9ths of a unit).
E.g., to electrolyse refined magnetite, currently I run it through a shredder to get 11 tiny dusts, then combine in a
dust funnel to get 1 regular dust with 2/9ths of a unit left in the funnel, then electrolyse the regular dust.
What would be great would be if I could throw a refined magnetite into the dust funnel, and have it add the same as
11 tiny dusts, so that I could skip the shredder step. From an RP perspective, I'm not sure what the shredder is supposed
to be doing - it is only resizing piles, exactly what the dust funnel exists to do.
