Official SCP Wiki Information

"SCP-914 is a large clockwork device weighing several tons and covering an area of eighteen square meters...Two large booths 3mx2.1mx2.1m (10ftx7ftx7ft) are connected via copper tubes to the main body of SCP-914, labeled “Intake” and “Output”. Between them is a copper panel with a large knob with a small arrow attached. The words Rough, Coarse, 1:1, Fine, and Very Fine are positioned at points around the knob. Below the knob is a large “key” that winds the “mainspring”.

When an object is placed in the Intake Booth, a door slides shut, and a small bell sounds. If the knob is turned to any position and the key wound up, SCP-914 will “refine” the object in the booth."


SCP-914 is located in Light Containment Zone in SCP-914's chamber. It is used to upgrade/downgrade various items, possibly destroy them, using one of five different settings.

Using SCP-914

A list of upgrade paths for various items can be found here.

The player can refine items inside SCP-914 by going inside the 'Intake' booth, then dropping an item inside it. The player can then turn the upper knob on the selection panel to select any of 5 different settings. Once the desired setting is selected, the "key" under the upper knob must be used to activate SCP-914.

SCP-914 has five (5) settings – "Rough", "Coarse", "1:1", "Fine", and "Very Fine" are displayed around the knob on the Selection Panel.

"Rough" and "Coarse" settings generally downgrade the quality of items, or even destroy them.

"1:1" changes items to another item of equal value. It will also recharge Radios and the Micro H.I.D.

"Fine" and "Very Fine" are used to upgrade or recharge items. "Very Fine" may upgrade items to higher tiers than "Fine" can, but has a higher chance to destroy items.
