When I first heard of redstone repeaters, I didn't understand how to use them at all. But in the future I learnt and I thought I might say how to use them.

Okay, if you are using redstone to make a really long wire, you won't get anywhere once you've reached 15 blocks. So you can use the redstone repeaters to extend the wire. You must make sure the repeater is facing the right way round.

You can even use the repeaters to delay a signal. Make a long column of repeaters and put something that is mechanical like a redstone lamp or a piston at the other end. We'll use pistons for example. Then add a lever or a button at the start of the line and right click on it. You'll realize it won't quickly activate this piston, it will slowly travel to it. Then it will go to the piston and activate it. If you use a button and keep on pressing it over and over again, the piston arm will keep on going up and down.

Right-clicking on the repeater will change the speed of the delay. Like if the torch on the repeater is in the 4th mode, it will move slowly. if it is in the 1st mode, it will move really fast.

Thanks for reading.

This tut can be made much better. Give more examples of what you can do with them, with pics. Also some parts can be better. Do some more research.

I didn't get how to do the pictures. It seemed a little complicated. Besides I'm new to planet minecraft.

You take screenshots with F2 or F3, and then upload them to imageschack or tinypic. And if you can do research or give examples, has nothing to do with if you're new here.
