The lamps and lanterns will change from floor, to wall, to ceiling styles and back again. The cases will change from floor to wall styles. The screw gun can also rotate many of vanillas block by sneak right-clicking. The piston, sticky piston, dispensers, droppers, repeaters, comparators, levers (floor/ceiling only), doors, single chests, ender chests, furnaces and finally anvils can all be rotated in this manner.
