|This article is about Buffer from TubeStuff. You may be looking for Buffer (RedPower 2).|
The Buffer allows you to transfer items between BuildCraft Pipes and Pneumatic Tubes easily. It also combines stacks of items together to reduce lag. You can fill it with items from BuildCraft Pipes, Redpower Tubes and placing in items manually. (just like a Chest).
If you put a Wooden or Golden Transport Pipe next to the Buffer, it will send one stack of items into the pipe every few seconds (depending on the number of empty slots - 5 seconds when empty, 0.5 seconds when full).
If you put a Filter next to it, with the input side of the filter facing the Buffer, the Buffer will output a Redstone signal to activate the Filter at the same rate and time that it sends items into the pipes.
Note: The BuildCraft Recipe is cheaper.
