Tinkers' Steelworks adds a way to make and create Steel through the use of a 3 x 3 multi-block structure, known as the High Oven. It is important to note that the High Oven can be upgraded like a standard Tinkers' Construct Smeltery by adding more layers to the top of the structure. To create Steel several components are needed to oxidize, reduce and purify the iron into steel.

Quote from KimoroDragon[edit]

...steel isn't just an alloy, it's also a complex crystalline structure. The initial materials play a huge role in the final product (as a bonus, this is one of the few places charcoal would work better than coal, due to impurities like sulfur), but it's how the steel is handled that determines it's ultimate resilience, tensile and shear strength and even corrosion resistance. From what I've gleaned, the molten phase is almost always performed under a nitrogen atmosphere (and when it's not that, near-vacuum), the materials are as precisely measured as is feasible, and following the initial melt the composition is tweaked with various additives (other metals like manganese, more carbon, sometimes even oxidizers or reducers to remove impurities like the aforementioned sulfur - all determined by the final use for the metal)."

Starting Out[edit]

To start out Tinker's Steelworks, it is a good idea to already have a working smeltery, used to make make a guidebook by smelting one piece of Cobblestone into Seared Stone and pouring it onto a Materials and You book, this makes the Steelworking and You guidebook. This guidebook illustrates basic steel working and gives the recipe for steel, and other metals.
