It definitely has a usable output; the input might be slightly more difficult:

What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

### Re: The Hunting of the New Herschel Conduits

There is also the possibility of starting with a B instead of a H, that new B-to-H block gets removed with the current construction:

### Re: The Hunting of the New Herschel Conduits

Is there any way to restore the upper block or replace it with an equivalent catalyst?

(Or bolt on an incomplete C-X that happens to put junk in the right place to delete the irritating mess that destroys the lower block and the eater.)
