Size 16x30
Where Compound


A chemical bath is used to treat metal.


This building becomes available after you have learned the Basic Metal Treatment tech.


Built in a Compound. Uses 16x30 cells.


Some caveats on usage of the bath. First. it takes 100 acid to operate. Most folks would consider making 100 acid non-trivial. So, you don't want to lose it. The menu choice "Empty the Bath" will dump the acid. It's gone, bye-bye. You could then take whatever metal is in the bath, and won't need the tongs.

Preferably, though, you have Tongs. After treating your metal, use the menu choice "Take Everything". That will preserve the acid and put the treated metal in your inventory.

You will need Tongs
