The Basic Duster is the first tier of four Dusters included in the Buildcraft Additions mod. It is used to multiply ores into dusts. This tier of duster is not automatable. To unlock this feature, the Semi-Automatic Duster or Kinetic Duster must be unlocked.
The Basic Duster does not require an unlocked prerequisite to function, unlike the higher tier dusters.
To use the Basic Duster, use the use key on the block with an ore, so that the ore is placed on top of the block. To process the ore, bounce on the Basic Duster eight times. Two Iron Dust will fly out of the duster.
