Arcane Bore firing. The items collected go to the chest. The lever is placed on the side of the Base.

automatically. The Arcane Bore can only be placed on the Arcane Bore Base top or bottom. Its direction can be changed with the right click of a Wand, and it needs a Wand of Excavation and a Pickaxe to operate. It drains vis from the local aura very rapidly. If your wand or pickaxe has an enchantment the Arcane Bore will mimic it.

The Arcane Bore Base has an output hole in one side(N, E, S, W), which can be changed with a Wand by right clicking a different side. You can place a chest or pipe on it for anything it digs up.

The Arcane Bore can be started with a redstone signal(lever) on the Base. It will dig in a circular pattern, for a base width of 5 and a max of 64 blocks distance. Arcane Bore is the "Quarry" of Thaumcraft 3.

Be warned that the local aura where you used the Arcane Bore will be drained dry, and you will have to deal with Flux problems. Use Crystal Clusters with Crystal Capacitors near your bore to balance the aura and most of the flux.

Requires the Portable HoleWand of Excavation andPickaxe of the Core research first, although the Thaumonomicon does not list it as such.

You can move the direction on where you want the bore to fire towards with a click of your wand.

You can put two Arcane Bores in a same Arcane Bore Base, one in top and one in bottom. They both need separate redstone signal and they can be put to fire in different directions.
