I was trying to make a water elevator, and the tutorial put the redstone dust next to the piston and it didn't connect. But when I tried it, the dust connected to the piston. I was wondering how I place the dust without it connecting to the piston?

  • Sometimes you can make your redstone wire go up or down a bit, but that depends on your setup. Mar 24, 2020 at 12:51

Instead of using redstone dust, you could replace the redstone next to the piston with a repeater
