Not a bad idea, although I expect many people to not use it since some ores are rarer than others and they have different uses some times!

It's a matter of balance!

AznaktaX, this just convert the ores/ingot into different versions. Like. say you want to use the Forestry tin instead of the IC2 tin.

useless if the modpack developer deactivate duplicate ores spawn (like i do in my modpacks) but useful for people who wants make his own modpack and are not enough skilled with config files (or too lazy to do that)

I always choose sponsored modders downloads. Do the same!

This will conflict with RP2 (Tin Nuggets, Copper Nuggets etc.), this may become a problem, just in case... though it's a nice idea, but you may know the mod "Omnitools", which adds a device to convert Ores(/Blocks) in the OreDictionary.
Mostly known as "Galaxy_2Alex", blame Curse for their back then borked system.

Hmm. It's a decent idea, but could have some problems. For instance, some mods may have nuggets designed from placing a single ingot within the crafting table. Perhaps another mod as well could be useful. Something that lets you scroll through what you can crafting using the same recipe?

For instance, let's say you have a mod that adds copper into the game, but you already had another mod that did the same. Also, one of them has a recipe to make its copper into nuggets. A button could appear somewhere above or next to the output area that lets you scroll through any other recipes that only require that one particular ingot. This is all just an example, of course, and could be used for many different situations.

I dunno. I think it could be useful, but I know little about coding with java. So, I don't know if you could go about this easily or not.

Looking for mods? Check out the Minecraft Forums Mod List that I maintain.

I really hate to hijack and all and I'm not trying to be mean here, but it (OmniTools) has already been mentioned:

This is definitely something Forge can use, which is why I already made it.

It's not useless. If you macerate copper ore (like say from RP2) with an IC2 Macerator, you're gonna get IC2 copper.

How about a new crafting table sort of thing, that's cheap to craft, and allows you to convert stuff without worrying about conflicting recipes?

EDIT: Looked at omnitools and found that they had something exactly like it. Why am I never the first to come up with the brilliant ideas? :)

Big difference from Omnitools since you don't have to craft these expensive fancy machines to do the conversion.  Obviously putting these in the same mod combo makes the lexicon meaningless, but this mod lets you convert forge equivalent ores from the beginning of the game.

I would like to see more work done on this mod because it is not working on all the versions of the same ore.  Is it like limited to only two different versions of the same ore, or does it only work with some mods and not others?

From my experimenting it will convert one way from thermal expansion ores to forestry ores, but will not work at all with industrial craft ores.

I just gave the omnitool lexicon and that certainly works fabulously.

I would suggest fixing this ore converter mod to work in a loop.  So that with three types of copper A,B,C the ore converter generates recipes like this
A->B
B->C
C->A
THEN some people will like this as an alternative that allows such conversions from the beginning of the game without an investment of materials.

if you watched the videos from the forgecraft server (the alpha server for both forge and many of the big mods) you'd know that something like this was being done already, long before you made this mod
If at first you don't succeed, try and die again

Your ore convertor only converts to the first regsitered ingot of each type in the oreDictioanry. If you really want a working converotr you should take a look at the omni tools lexicon. It is a block with an interface and you can scroll through each ingot of the same time. For example i have 5 ingotCopper in my minecraft. IC2, Forestry, My mod, Cogs OF The Machine, thermal expansion. It does get annoying so the lexicon does help.
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that don’t.
