J.E. Sawyer's Fallout RPGEdit

You are extremely skilled at making conventional body armor (all non-power and non-Tesla armor). You have +5 to your skill when making qualifying equipment. Requires a Mechanics Shop.


In Fallout 4, the perk is needed to craft mods from scratch, not for applying or removing mods. It is possible to remove an uncraftable mod and apply it freely on a different piece of the same kind of armor.
