The Tool Forge is an upgraded form of the tool station allowing tier 2 tool creation.
Tool Forge Slab*
*Iron Blocks may be replaced with Gold Blocks, Diamond Blocks, Emerald Blocks, Cobalt Blocks, Ardite Blocks, Manyullyn Blocks, Copper Blocks, Bronze Blocks, Tin Blocks, Aluminum Blocks, Aluminum Brass Blocks, Alumite Blocks, or Steel Blocks.
This block is the same as the Tool Station but also allows tier 2 tools to be crafted. These tools provide more damage, mine more blocks at once (the hammer, excavator and lumber axe all mine in a 3x3 area), and have more durability than their tier 1 equivalent. There are no other things that are different between the Tool Station and the Tool Forge. New tool parts can be used in tool creation, including the hammer head, scythe blade, broad axe head, broad shovel head, tough tool rod, large sword blade, large plate, knife blade, bolt core, and tough binding. For more information on where these parts are used, see the Hammer, Excavator, Lumber axe, Scythe, Battleaxe, Cleaver, Longbow, Crossbow, Bolt, and Shuriken pages.
