Many Tinkered item recipes mention that once a certain amount of uses of said item have been utilized the item needs to be repaired as if it had been shattered. Plot mentioned that Tinkering is in and of itself a craft specialty so my question is do Tinkers get the ability to repair like crafters do or can they only repair Tinkered items?

(Not plot)

From the paragraph above the Tinkering production tables:

"Repairing a Broken or Shattered tinkered item uses the same rules as does Craft, with the level of devices counting as the number of specialties."

So
Basic devices = 10 minutes
Intermediate devices = 5 minutes
Advanced devices = 1 minute
for BROKEN tinkered items.
Shattered items require production and a minimum of Intermediate Devices to be repaired. As a tinker, you cannot repair crafted items, just as crafters cannot repair tinkered items.
