If you wear armor that has mending, often the xp predominantly goes to them first, before going to the tools or weapons. Try taking off anything with mending and let us know if that solves it or not.

sadly your idea of taking my mending armour did not work. I have 56 levels of xp and they still will not mend

The XP only goes towards mending the item if it is in your hand (or offhand), and only uses XP thats gathered, not XP that you already have, so unfortunately your 56 levels won't go towards your pickaxe

Code: Select all

Fun fact, the [code] BBCode tag won't display the HTML code you just 
spent 30 minutes on.

So, it's in your hotbar in the far left space? It needs to be the held item, in your main hand.

Having it in any other space in your hotbar will not mend.

Added in 5 minutes 24 seconds:
As we met in the EB and I repaired one, you are not mending correctly.

Either kill with the sword and immediately swap it out with the pickaxe or kill the endermen with the pickaxe.. And make sure to take off all armor with mending.
