The Metal Former is a machine which is used and/or needed to craft various items, such as Plates, Item Casings, and Cable. The Metal Former has 3 modes which can be toggled by clicking the button underneath the progress bar: Rolling, Cutting, and Extruding. Rolling mode is represented by a [[Forge Hammer]] and is used to turn Ingots into Plates, and Plates into Item Casings. Cutting mode is represented by a [[Cutter]] and is used to turn Plates into Cable, and also [[Iron Item Casing]] into [[Industrial Credit]]. Extruding mode is represented by [[Copper Cable]], and is used to turn Ingots directly into cable, as well as some other recipes shown below.
