Edit By Crinrict: Added Tag to Title
I have also confirmed this issue.
I repaired the dew collector with a sim that does not have the handiness skill line and it did not add the skill line during the repair.
I will say that the repair on this device is extremely short even when the sim does not have the handiness skill, so the progress on the skill line would be negligible in my opinion, but a repair is a repair and should count for something even if it is very little.
P.S. I think the repair should take a lot longer for the sim with little to no handiness and have a possibility of failure, along with the repair making a trash heap, just like every other electronic/plumbing item.
