The Turntable is a functional block added by Better With Mods. It is most commonly used for block rotation, Redstone timing, and spinning unfired pottery.

The Turntable will rotate the block directly on top of it by fixed 90 degree increments when provided with Mechanical Power. The speed at which the Turntable rotates the block can be configured by right-clicking with an empty hand on any side of the block to move the switch. From left to right, the rotate time will change from 0.5, 1, 2, and then 4 seconds. If provided with a Redstone signal, the Turntable will rotate in reverse.

When a non-opaque block is being rotated above the Turntable, it will transmit the rotation to the block above it. For example, if Glass is placed above the Turntable, and a Chest is placed above the Glass, the Chest will be rotated.

If the Turntable is not turning unfired pottery and is mechanically powered, it will play the vanilla button click sound at every rotation.

Extended Pistons cannot be rotated.

Pottery spinning

If a Clay block, Unfired Crucible, Unfired Planter, or Unfired Vase is placed above the Turntable, it will slowly work into different unfired pottery blocks. The Unfired Urn, which is at the end of the pottery cycle, will turn into a piece of Clay. Each block takes around 8 seconds to turn into the next, and with each process, the sound of Clay breaking is played.

These unfired blocks will then generally be fired in the Kiln.

Timing and additional rotation

Certain blocks (generally Redstone related) that are attached to the sides of blocks above the Turntable will rotate with the block it is on. These blocks include: Torches, Redstone Torches, Levers, Signs, and Buttons. This allows for the player to create different timed circuits using the redstone signal on the Redstone Torch. This method is commonly used for timing a Bellows which is essential for the creation of Stoked Fires.
