Talk:Burner mining drill
Mining speed and output
The info box is wrong, the mining speed is 0.35,no unit (or items, although not releant). items/sec would express an output, and 0.35 items/sec is definitely not the output of burner drills. The output of a fully powered burner drill on copper, iron and coal is 0.28, would be twice as small for uranium, and greater for stone (0.3675 items/sec) as shown here : https://wiki.factorio.com/Mining. I don't know how to edit the infobox so can't make the change, if someone can integrate these information, it would be great.
Caveats re: self-sustaining mines w/ burner inserters
The design outlined in Burner_mining_drill#Method_2 can result in the northern burner inserters becoming coal-starved to the point that they have to be refueled manually. Perhaps we should warn new players about it, lest they copy the design as-is and become perplexed when it doesn't work as well as they expected.
