Stops working periodically[edit source]

Every 150 or so "turns" of the driller it stops working until you reclick the mouse button, but as useal, need confirmation from someone else aswell. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Faya4061 (talkcontribs) at 02:39, 12 December 2011‎ (UTC)

I can confirm this, but it was around 125 for me. Only tested the cobalt drill, the only one I have so far. And please, sign your comments by putting --~~~~ at the end. -- 03:10, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Well actually it is not the number of blocks. After 1 minute of pressing the mouse button the drill will stop, mining or not.So it is either sort of an anomaly as in overheating or a bug. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Faya4061 (talkcontribs) at 10:14, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Unobtainable Lunar drills?[edit source]

Do you think it's okay to list the unobtainable Lunar drills (e.g. the Solar Flare Drill in here)? goldenapple (talk) 17:58, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Orichalcum Drill mining speed[edit source]

Is the Orichalcum Drill's mining speed really 10? Its pickaxe equivalent is listed with a mining speed of 8, and it does look like an outlier on File:Pickaxes.svg. --CyberShadow WA (talk) 14:27, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Looking at the Version source code, I can confirm the tool speed is 10. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:37, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. In this case, probably it should be made clear that at least in this case, drills differ from their pickaxe equivalent by more than visuals and possible prefixes. --CyberShadow WA (talk) 19:48, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
I added a note, thank you for the suggestion! --Rye Greenwood (talk) 20:23, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
