This module adds the ability to uncraft tools, weapons, and armour.


Disassemblers will return the materials used to craft iron and gold, swords, tools, and armour. They can also return the materials used to craft shears, and flint and steel.


The Disassembler can be crafted in a Custom Crafter using the following recipe:

Item Ingredients Recipe (Custom Crafter)
Disassembler Iron Ingot +


Obsidian +

Stonecutter +


Custom Crafter


To disassemble an item, place it in the center spot of the disassembler's inventory. The items returned will be based on the percent durability left on the item, plus some randomness. A more damaged tool will return less materials than a nearly undamaged tool. The returned materials will appear inside the disassembler.

Disassemblers can be moved with Relocators.
