I just built a drill in Core Keeper and I can't figure out how to rotate it so that it will point at a deposit. It always seems to point north. How can I rotate the drill, either while placing it, or after placing it?

I don't see anything listed in the controls / settings. I see posts about having 8 drills on one resource node though, which implies there are 2 on each side all facing inward, so I believe it is possible.

According to this guide:

Rotate the Drill by pressing E so that the drill bit faces the ore rock.

    Thanks! Yep, it's the Interact key (E by default), after the drill is placed, and you really have to be at the right spot. Highlighting it is not enough.
