Tools by Mining Level Edit

I found it very hard at times to ascend the tool ladder... having minerals I could not mine lying about drove me nuts enough that I decided to do some serious research. For ease of access (both mine and others) my results are listed below.

Difficulty is based first on mining difficulty of the ingredients followed by rarity. I really haven't gotten near the end-game so the higher levels are simply conjecture. I've marked materials that are extra-productive (i.e. skip a step) and counter-productive (i.e. don't scale to the next step). They do have their uses, however, as you might notice on the Tinker's Construct page.

Speed & Enchantment stats taken from various in-game books, duration from the tool itself, though keep in mind Tinker's Construct tools can double their durability with the right rod.
