How to get Grinder in My Time at Sandrock

The Grinder can be unlocked by doing research at the Lab. Head over to the Research lab located on the southeast part of the map, and you will have to speak to Qi. Qi is a lab technician. Once you interact with him, choose Research, and now you will be able to trade for Data Disks so that you can unlock the new Grinder recipes. You are making the Grinder will cost you up to three data disks and will take a total of a day in-game time to unlock it from the research center itself.

Data disks can be acquired by salvaging them from the scrap piles near Eufaula Salvage Yard or in the Ruins. You can also buy data disks from the Rock’s Shop at Eufaula Salvage Yard. Speed up the whole research process by spending more data disks. But we wouldn’t advise that because the research time is in-game units and not in real-time, so you won’t have to wait for a day to get your Grinder. Instead, save up your data disks for other crafting uses.
