It’s a given that in Minecraft, whenever you use an item it will eventually lose durability. This can lead to many players making duplicates of damaged items in order to compensate for the eventual damage that their items will suffer. In this article, we shall go over the methods through which you can conduct repairs on items to save not just time, but also resources that you might not want to spend on creating entirely new items.
Get two copies of a single item that you want to be repaired when both of their durability is used up. Place them in your crafting grid and an improved version of the item will be made.
Place your crafted Grindstone on the ground. Then place the damaged items that you want into the grindstone selection item and your new and improved item will be made.
Place your anvil on the ground. Then place your two items into the anvil’s repair slot and it will add the weaker items' durability to the stronger.
It is if you want to save resources.
Items like the anvil can only repair other items so many times before it itself runs out of durability. That is the most likely reason why you find yourself unable to repair your tool.
