Blast Furnace (RotaryCraft)

Reason: Add GUI, describe usage better, replace the word 'smelts', get specific numbers for bedrock gear vs diamond gear
The Blast Furnace is primarily used to make HSLA Steel Ingots from iron ingots. The HSLA Steel Ingots are needed for most recipes in RotaryCraft. The furnace must be heated externally; place it above lit netherrack or lava, which will raise its temperature to at least 600C. Its GUI has 3 slots to the left, 9 in the middle, and 3 to the right, the slots to the left are the 'fuel' slots, and need to have Sand in the top, Coal in the middle, and gunpowder in the bottom. The gunpowder is either never consumed, or lasts very long (over 5 stacks so far). The nine middle slots are where you place the iron ingots, and all nine can be smelted at the same time. The RotaryCraft Handbook suggests that using all nine slots at once makes it smelt faster. It seems that more than nine HSLA Steel Ingots can be produced by nine iron ingots, but more testing should be done. The right 3 slots are the output slots, so that more smelting can be done without removing the output every seven 'smelts'.
The other product this is used for is Bedrock Ingots. Following description taken from RotaryCraft Handbook: "To make them, put 4 Bedrock Dust in the left, one steel ingot in the top-left of the grid, and heat the machine to 1000C." Bedrock ingots are used to craft some mid-game machines, and also can be used to craft tools and armor, which is better than diamond gear. In order to get bedrock dust, the machine Bedrock Breaker must be used.
