Data Value

The Redstone Clutch is identical to the Gear Box, but with the added benefit that it can be disengaged. Applying redstone power to a Redstone Clutch will cause the output gears to disengage, effectively allowing redstone control of mechanical power. You may place a Lever directly on the box to control it.

Applications

Keep in Mind

  • Can be rotated by right-clicking on it with an empty hand, but only if it is not connected to an axle.
  • The input side must face the axle which the Mechanical power will come from. The input side faces you when you place it.
  • Redstone power will not create mechanical power in the redstone clutch but disengage it's gears. (shutting it down, stop the mechanical power)
  • Thunderstorms will destroy the first gearbox or redstone clutch connected to any Wind Mill unless redstone power is applied to it; if the redstone power is switched off during during the thunderstorm, the gear box breaks immediately. Only 2 gold nuggets (and no Redstone dust) are dropped from the destroyed box.
  • In many situations building the mechanical power transmission from target to source is much easier than the other way around. e.g. you may place the gear box directly on an axle.
