The Grind Stone's interface.

To operate the Quartz Grind Stone, a Wooden Crank must be placed on top of the block by shift right-clicking the block.

To process ores in the Grind Stone, ores can be placed in the three top-left slots. Holding down the right-mouse button on the Wooden Crank will start the process. After all ores are processed, the Wooden Crank will cease to move and will break after repeated attempts to use it with nothing in the Quartz Grind Stone. Processed ores can be taken out from the bottom-right slots.
