My constructor uses 2 Iron Ingots at a time but why does it stop production when there are 3 ingots available? It only continues when the 4th ingots arrives. If noticed this same behavior on other machines as well. It looks like they need at least double the amount of resources before they start.

This makes it sometimes hard to obtain 100% efficiency.

Not sure if it's the source of your question here or not, but I have noticed on several buildings the animation for the building can take several seconds to wind up, and during that time the building will not be producing anything. Smelters and Miners are really easy to see this on, but I haven't really checked with the constructor.

Interesting observation. Might have a look at it as well.
