The redstone torch will help to fire up your engine. You have to place the landmarks on all four corners of the quarry to start building the structure.

You will need terracotta blocks, wood blocks, stone blocks, redstone blocks, granite stone, andesite stone, iron ore, gold ore, lapis ore, sticky pistons, and much more to build this giant quarry.

Variable Timing Quarry
You can use the fence gate for an on/off switch, and you need a 7 high bottom trench for this quarry. Grabbars will prepare the terrain and they first attempt to push to crush liquids. Once the grabber reaches the top, the water will start spreading, water will prevent the explosion from weakening the block shield. TNT blows from bottom to top, it will destroy some items, and the trapdoors will prevent tnt from going too far. The cycle will start again when grabbers reach the bottom. You need to have a 3-wide trench in each side before running the quarry, and make sure water is not flowing outside.
You will need to dig a lot of blocks on the ground to make a stone quarry, you can use TNT to blow up the ground blocks. You need to have spruce wood blocks, spruce slabs, dark oak blocks, cobblestone, spruce trapdoors, spruce stairs, smooth sandstone blocks. You can use spruce stairs for the roof of the warehouse.
You can build this quarry a bit away from your base. You will need coal, buildcraft pipes, wooden transport pipes, crates, sticks, coal blocks, levers and a lot more items. The buildcraft pipes will help to extend different parts of the quarry. Pull the lever to activate the quarry and start crafting coal.
You have to build this quarry near the water source. You will need a lever, water bucket, combustion engine, stirling engine, landmarks, golden fluid pipe, cobblestone blocks, transport pipe, diamond transport pipes and more to build it. You will need to lay the landmarks parallel to each other in a square to place the quarry. Place the pump in the water and connect it with the engine.
