    I've been asked this multiple times, since I started playing Sky Factory 2.5:

    How do you make an unbreakable hoe to place in a Farming Station?
    Answer: Using Tinker's Construct, make an unbreakable Mattock (which works as a hoe).

    Now, you might be asking "How do I do that without using nether stars and whatnot to increase the number of modifiers?" Well, I'll tell you.

    Smeltery
    Smeltery Controller
    Seared Faucet
    Casting Table

    Part Builder (Tinker's Construct)
    Tool Forge (Tinker's Construct)
    Stencil Table (Tinker's Construct) - Only if you don't already have the patterns listed below.

    Patterns:
    - Tool Rod Pattern
    - Axe Head Pattern
    - Shovel Head Pattern
    - Large Plate Cast

    Materials:
    - Magical Wood (3)
    - Magical Wooden Axe Head (1)
    - Magical Wooden Shovel Head (1)
    - Magical Wooden Tool Rod (1)
    - Obsidian (29)
    - Obsidian Tool Rod (1)
    - Obsidian Large Plate (7)

    Using a Part Builder, utilize the patterns (Tool Rod, Axe Head and Shovel Head) and Magical Wood to make Magical Wooden Axe Head, Shovel Head and Tool Rod.
    3 parts to make a mattock - also, a Magical Wooden Shard.

    Create a mattock entirely of magical wood (Magical Wooden Axe Head + Magical Wooden Shovel Head + Magical Wooden Tool Rod), using your Tool Forge.
    Upon creation of the Magical Wooden Mattock, you'll see that the Modifiers Remaining shows 9 - that means you've done this step correctly.

    Using the Part Builder, create an Obsidian Tool Rod (Tool Rod Pattern + 1 Obsidian).
    Now we have an Obsidian Shard. Huh.

    Within the Tool Forge, combine Obsidian Tool Rod with the Magical Wooden Mattock, and you'll find your Magical Wooden Mattock now has Reinforced III, and still has 9 Remaining Modifiers available.
    Now the main portion of the tool is made, we need to now increase the level of Reinforced.

    Within the Smeltery Controller, place 28 Obsidian. Once melted down, right click your Seared Faucet so that the molten Obsidian goes onto your Casting Table (with Large Plate Cast on table) - this will give you Obsidian Large Plates, which we need 7 of.
    We're nearly done, so hang in there!

    Within the Tool Forge, combine Magical Wooden Mattock with 7 Obsidian Large Plates - each time you add one, you'll noticed the Reinforced level goes up by 1.
    Once you reach Reinforced X, that's unbreakable!

    Optional:
    With the remaining 2 available modifiers, you can continue to fine tune your mattock - personally, I recommend increasing the luck, as that increases your harvest.
    Materials: 450 Lapis Lazuli (or 50 Lapis Lazuli Blocks)
    Within the Tool Forge, combine the Lapis Lazuli with the Magical Wooden Mattock (unbreakable).
    Machine:
    - Fluid Transposer

    Materials:
    - Liquid XP (8,000 mB)
    - 8000RF
    - Bookshelf

    Place Bookshelf in Fluid Transposer, making sure the Fluid Transposer has (at least) 8,000RF and 8,000mB Liquid XP.
    Other option involves 4 Enchanted Books, a Bookshelf and 4 Gold Ingots - which is easier?

    Questions and Answers:

    Q: What are the Shards good for?
    A: A Shard can be used to make an additional Tool Rod, which is great if you're making more mattocks.

    Q: Why not just use a Zivicio Hoe in a Farming Station? It's unbreakable, right?
    A: In the hand, it's unbreakable. In the farming station, it's not - it does, in fact, lose durability in there. From my experience, unless a tool outright says Unbreakable in the description, it's going to break in a farming station. Also, Zivicio Hoe will not go into a farming station on some servers.

    Q: Why not use a Bedrockium Hoe in a Farming Station?
    A: Like the Zivicio Hoe, it also loses durability in a Farming Station. This has been tested.

    One, don't be insulting. And two, Ichor isn't hard to get once you're at that point. And I never said it was practical. I said it would work.

    Seeing how difficult it is to get ichorium on infinity expert mode, it is rather shocking to waste it upon a tree farm, even if just as an example.

    meh i once used a max teir draconic energy core for decoration in my base without even using it ;) (and the entire floor was also made of vibrant capacitor banks)
    the point when you get to the endgame sometimes its fun to just make the most expensive version of everything just cus you can.

    You cannot be rich on a modpack with projectE, so it does not counts.

    It might be infinite durability when you're holding it, just like the Zivicio Hoe. However, if it's like the Zivicio Hoe, it will lose durability in a Farming Station because it does not actually say Unbreakable.
