Tinkers' Bedrock: Blades of the Forge (v2.1)

Thumbnail: Tinkers' Bedrock: Blades of the Forge (v2.1) Go to files

Tinkers' Construct is a Java mod, first created by mDiyo, now recreated in Bedrock Edition! This add-on adds a variety of new tools and weapons to the game, along with some extra features.

Tinkers' Bedrock Logo

This add-on takes the original mod and rebuilds it from the ground up.

It adds 14 unique, customizable tools. While there are basic vanilla materials, like wood, stone, and iron, there are now various unique ones, such as bone, flint, and even brand new alloys like manyullyn and pig iron, which are recreated to the best of my ability and maintained to be used in 1.20.80 and 1.21!

This add-on is cross-compatible with Natura: Regrown, a nature expansion designed to work alongside Tinkers' Bedrock.

We've also just pushed out a brand new wiki for the add-on!

Check it out right here, and discover how the add-on has evolved over time!

Learn more about the Add-on:


As of v2.0, this add-on has been split into separate modules to improve performance for lower-end devices, so you can pick which features you want.

Modules are basically standalone parts of the add-on that you can use by themselves if you want to.

These are seen as Behaviour Packs.

Tinkers' Bedrock Behaviour Packs

  • If using the Smeltery module, make sure it is placed above the others, to avoid breaking the progression chain.
  • The Core module is needed for the others to work properly (besides gadgetry), providing all the new ores and alloys in the add-on.
  • The other modules are completely optional, depending on how you want to play the game.

The Resource Pack is shown here.

Tinkers' Bedrock Resource Pack

  • The Tinkers' Bedrock [RP] is all you need for all the modules to work.
  • Side Note: Glory Days was an optional overlay pack that brings back the classic 1.12 Java textures. Rest assured, this may return in a later update.
Core Module

In this module, there are 3 new ores to find in your world, along with 4 new alloys to create for your tools.

Without the Smeltery module, you simply make these alloys on a crafting table.


This is an ore as common as copper, is one major component for the smeltery, and is found between Y levels 0 and 100.

Extra Notes: Can be alloyed to make Alumite.

Aluminium Ore


This is a rare ore which is found in the nether, and is found between Y levels 24 and 96.

Material Trait: Momentum - You mine faster after mining multiple blocks in a row.

Extra Notes: Fast mining speed.

Cobalt Ore


This is also a rare ore which is found in the nether, and is found between Y levels 48 and 128.

Extra Notes: High durability, tool textures remastered by Tomanex.

Ardite Ore


Made with: Iron + Copper

Material Trait: Dense - Last 40% of durability has chance to not be lost.

Bronze Items

Pig Iron

Made with: 2 Iron + Blood + Honey

Material Trait: Tasty - Your tool can be eaten a bit at a time.

Pig Iron Items


Made with: 3 Aluminium + 1 Iron + 1 Obsidian

Material Trait: Bountiful - Mining raw materials has chance to drop extra nuggets/shards.

Alumite Items


Made with: Cobalt + Ardite

Extra Notes: High attack damage.

Materials and You

The guidebook for this module. Has 37 pages.

Materials and You Recipe

Crafting Station

A Tinkers' Style Crafting Table.

Crafting Station Recipe

Tool Handles

All your tools use wooden handles, craftable on just a crafting table.

However, a tough handle is used for broader tools.

Tool Handle Recipe

Tough Tool Handle Recipe

Part Builder

This is a table required for making parts for tools (other than tool handles).

All you'd need are a few patterns and the tool material you want to use.

Part Builder Recipe

Tinker Station

This is a table used to combine the parts to make your tools.

Tinker Station Recipe


A tool will lose durability after use, so luckily you can repair it whenever in an anvil, using the head material.

However, if you are unfortunate enough for it to break, you can still repair it as you get a broken variant of it, but you will need a Repair Station.

Note: All enchants will be lost if a tool breaks.

Repair Station Recipe

Tinker's Forge

This block is an upgraded Tinker Station, which allows you to make more advanced tools.

Smeltery Module

With this module active, metal tool parts are no longer craftable in the Part Builder, and require a Smeltery to progress.


This block is needed to make seared bricks and is crafted with clay, sand and gravel.

Grout Recipe

Seared Brick

This item is used to make Seared Bricks, or components for the smeltery.

Seared Brick Recipe

Mighty Smelting

The guidebook for this module. Has 15 pages.

Mighty Smelting Recipe

Seared Bricks

This is mainly a decorative block, and its appearance can be changed by placing it in the stonecutter.

Seared Bricks Recipe

Seared Tanks and Gauges

These are used to store lava and molten metals.

Seared Tank Recipe

Seared Gauge Recipe



  • Early Smeltery
  • Fuelled with coal
  • Fuel Capacity: 400mb
  • Fluid Capacity: 3 Ingots

Melter: Screenshot

What is "mb"?

"mb" stands for milli-buckets, so 1000mb = 1 bucket. This is used to measure how much fuel you have left.

For example, 1000mb is the required fuel to melt 10 ingots, so smelting an Iron Block will consume 900mb of fuel at once.


There are 2 ways of moving about your molten fluid:

Aluminium Cans

Holds one ingot worth of fluid per can (molten buckets hold 2 ingots worth).

Aluminium Cans Recipe

Seared Faucets

Instead of carrying about your fluid, you can directly pour it out from your melter.

Seared Faucets Recipe

Seared Channels

Instead of having your faucets tied to one place, you can use channels to pour fluid to your casting containers from as far away from the melter as you like!

Seared Channels Recipe

Seared Channels: Screenshot

Casting Table

This is vital for making metal tool parts and is essentially an upgraded part builder.

Casting Table Recipe

Sand Casts

Before you get access to gold, you can create disposable sand casts, that are single-use.

Sand Casts Recipe

Disposable Sand Casts Recipe

Gold Casts

These casts can be reused as much as you like!

Gold Casts Recipe

Both of these casts are used to shape molten fluid into the desired tool part.

Gold Casts Usage

Casting Basin

This is a much faster way of getting metal blocks than the casting table.

Casting Basin Recipe



  • 3x3x1 internal size
  • Gives 2 ingots per ore
  • Able to alloy
  • Fuelled with lava
  • Fuel Capacity: 1000mb
  • Fluid Capacity: 18 ingots

Smeltery Controller

The main component for a smeltery.

To make it, pour some molten aluminium on top of a Seared Heater, while in a Casting Basin.

Smeltery Controller Recipe


Building a smeltery requires a 3x3 bottom with 1 to 3 block tall walls surrounding it.

Make sure to also place the controller in the center of the wall.

Activate it by either pouring lava directly into the controller or having a tank next to it.

Like the melter, interact with the material you want to smelt, and it will be added to the smeltery.

Smeltery Model: Screenshot 1

Smeltery Model: Screenshot 2

Seared Grate

To directly interact with the fluid and move it around, you can use grates with Aluminium Cans to take it wherever you like.

This allows you to rearrange layers of the smeltery with ease.

Seared Grate Recipe

Seared Grate: Screenshot

While fluids in the lower layers may look full, they may not be. The grates allow you to interact with fluids as if they were at the top of the pile!

How to use:

  • Interact with your bare hand to check how much fluid (out of 9 ingots) is stored on that layer.
  • Interact with Aluminium Cans to deposit or withdraw fluid from an existing layer (use the controller to add new fluid).
Gadgetry Module

Tinker's Gadgetry

The guidebook for this module. Has 12 pages.

Tinker's Gadgetry Recipe

Slime Islands

Across the ocean, you will find a small green island, home to slimes.

Slime Islands: Screenshot

Slime Sling and Slime Boots

A slime sling allows you to shoot yourself into the sky from blocks, as an essential method of travel.

Slime Boots script code provided by HaxTheCharizard.

Slime Sling Recipe

Slime Boots Recipe

Even more additions!

Drying Rack

This block is used to dry food and turn it into jerky or leather. It will take around 5 minutes for raw food to dry and around 8.5 minutes for cooked food to dry.

Drying Rack Recipe

Drying Racks: Screenshot


This block can be stacked upon itself to create a sturdy barrier against enemies.

Barricades Recipe


This placeable item allows you to light up floors, without the use of a torch.

Glowball Recipe

Punji Sticks

Transforming bamboo into deadly mob traps.

Punji Sticks Recipe


A fancy stone providing a slippery surface to run on.

Can be smelted and made into various other variants in the stonecutter.

Rough Brownstone Recipe

Vanilla Equipment Remover (Bonus Pack)

Find the game too easy?

This bonus pack removes the ability to craft any vanilla tools, weapons, and even armor.

While they can still be found as loot, this pack essentially forces you to rely on the tools and armour provided by the Arsenal module, to give you that extra challenge.

Worth the challenge? Try it out!

Updating from v2.0

If you have had the add-on beforehand in an existing world, it is important to know that not everything will remain in your game as it should.

For example:

  • All pre-existing tinkers tools will disappear from your inventory, due to them having new identifiers
  • Any renamed/removed parts will disappear from your inventory
  • All existing patterns are no longer needed, so will will disappear from your inventory
  • You may need to break and replace your Part Builder
  • Smeltery blocks may need breaking and replacing (mainly the Smeltery Controller, Casting Table and Seared Channels)
  • Remove any casts already placed in Casting Tables
  • Molten Buckets have been removed, so ensure to remove any stored fluid from buckets to avoid losing any fluid
  • Destroy any placed down Tinkers' Anvils, as they have changed into a 'Tinker's Forge' instead

If you do still want to keep your old worlds with Tinkers on them, you still can, just ensure you acknowledge the info above.

Ensure you have completed these steps before swapping to the newer version.

Terms of Use

Required Experiments for Tinkers' Bedrock Addon

Original Permission

Permission from @Merdiwen

Recommended Packs

  • If you would like to see the durability of your tools, like the original Java mod, I would recommend to add a durability viewer resource pack onto your world too.
    • This Durability Viewer pack is somewhat old, yet still proves effective as of 1.20.80, so this one is recommended.
  • If you want to feel even closer to java, I would recommend Raiyon's Java Combat add-on, with most tools supporting attack cooldowns.
  • Natura: Regrown (as mentioned earlier) is a Nature companion for Tinkers' Bedrock, providing brand new tree types and more!
  • Greatly inspired by this add-on in my early dev days, Tinker's Legacy provides another completely unique system that also captures the vibes of Tinkers' Construct. This and Tinkers' Bedrock should have no compatibility issues and can be used together.

Final Note

Thank you for trying out this add-on. It is something I've worked on for a long time because this mod has been something I've always wanted to play on Bedrock Edition, and being able to adapt it into something brand new is amazing to me.

I will still continue to update this add-on and I will try to do my best in making this add-on as polished as ever!

I will make you proud, mDiyo!

If you find any bugs, please let me know on my discord and I'll do my best to fix them.
