The Arcane Bore is a magical mining tool from the Thaumcraft mod.

The Arcane Bore allows one to mine vast quantities of material in a relatively short time, however, it is a bit expensive to operate. You can craft it with four Gold Ingots, four Enchanted Wood and one Animated Piston in the regular Crafting Table:

To function, the bore requires two components: An Arcane Focus and Arcane Singularities. A standard Arcane Focus is created as follows:

Arcane Focus

The Arcane Focus determines the range and width of the Arcane Bore's mining area. There are several different types of Foci, but the others are only gained through research - see Arcane Focus for the full list. The magical mining rays protuding from the Arcane Bore will always take the color of the Focus the Bore is equipped with. While the Arcane Bore is in operation the focus will slowly suffer damage and will eventually break.

Check Arcane Singularity to see how Arcane Singularities are created. They act as a fuel source for the Bore. You will need two stacks of Redstone Dust as well as one stack of Coal and one stack of Glowstone Dust to produce one stack of Arcane Singularities.

The Arcane Bore needs a Redstone signal to activate. The easiest way to provide the Bore with a signal would be to attach a lever to the block below it. Any item mined is drawn towards the front of the bore and then ejected out of its back. You can alter the facing of the bore with an Arcane Tinkering Tool. If you place a chest at the exit side of the bore, it will cause the ejected items to enter the chest instead.

It can also be connected to BuildCraft Transport Pipes for automatic fuel support and further processing of the mined blocks and items.

As other mining devices, it cannot mine liquids, but it will mine the sections below (or behind) the liquid.
