comment Can a cracked toilet be permanently repaired?
Sadly there is no way to reglaze porcelain with a kiln or attach two pieces together after the porcelain has been fired once.

comment What type of sander could be used for both sanding spackle and doors?
While I agree with the answer if you have a large wall area to sand you might be better off using a drywall sander. I did the same thing that you did and attempting to sand it smooth with a small sander was an exercise in frustration. I rented a drywall sander at the home depot similar to this one. (portercable.com/products/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=11616) It was well worth it super smooth, really fast, and it kept the dust way down.

comment Are alternative roofing types, such as rubber roll, usable for a typical residential sloped roof?
What are you trying to do exactly? If it has a steep pitch you can put a rubber roof on it but that may be overkill. Why won't regular shingles work?

comment How can I repair rusty tools?
My Dad cleaned up some old rusty planes that my grandfather let rust with naval jelly. They looked awesome when he was done.
