As a Crafting IngredientEdit

The Wooden Gear is primarily used with 4 cobblestone to craft a Stone Gear, a slightly more advanced gear required to create some machines. Wooden gears are also used to create Automatic Crafting Tables, Redstone Engines, Tin Gears, and Copper Gears.

Wood gears can also be used to make automatic crafting tables, which can be life savers for making large amounts of Equilvant Exchange fuel, or for automatic crafting in large machines. The recipe uses a crafting table with four wood gears, one on each side.
