Minecraft Clay Making Machine

Something you could build with all that clay.
I had a few people asked me about the clay maker mentioned in a previous post so here is a quick guide on how to make one. Here is what it looks like, it's a very simple design.
Place the water spring in the back so it flows towards you, the pressure plates in the front are there to stop the water from advancing any further. To use it place a gravel block directly in front of the pressure plate, it will touch the water and turn to clay instantly.
Now stand on the pressure plate and destroy the clay block, the water current will push the clay into you to be collected! Now rinse and repeat and you can turn all of your gravel into clay!
This machine is very useful as it turns plentiful and nearly useless gravel into clay which can be used to make brick. I also like it's very simple design that requires few materials.

  14. Hey... I know what would be better. Destroy the block in the back and under the wall and then place water so it takes the clay pieces to you. Won't have to get in the water just wait and it will come to you.
