Since when have activated furnaces given Redstone pulses? Am I just a noob, or does that not happen? If it does, than this s brilliant..

its not the redstnone signal...it is the block update of the furncae turning into an active furnace...thus causing an update of the piston extending
I asked the same thing lol!

I've played this game since before pistons were out, and I've never seen this before. I think he made this video for people like me, not people like you who've seen before.

Can't you tile the third one by using a pair of repeaters to "point" at the sand, instead of trailing dust ends? Either way these are genius, and I really wish I'd known about these a little while ago! When you've got 10 furnaces on the go it's awesome to be able to see which are in use. Shame there's no way of testing if a furnace has finished its load as well....
~Karenthian~
You can see if it's finished it's load in one of the designs in the video. Did you watch it all?

Let's say you have a lot of furnaces and you leave some smelting. When you come back, they will all be turned off and instead of looking inside each and all of them, you can see wether it was used or not, the furnace, that is.

where do you come up with your insanely awesome ideas???
Does the furnace give off a redstone signal or what? How does it activate the pistons?

cool, is there a way to auto-reset?
There might be, I suspect using logic gates. I'll try it out soon and tell you if I've found a way. If I have, I think I'll add it as a SCHEMATIC file Project to my portfolio.
