None of my crew have any + crit chance for armortech skill, will i still be able to have a chance to make a item with the extra aug. slot??? And can i make them now, or do i have to wait till 1.2?

You CAN crit while crafting even if the companion doesn't have the crit bonus. The bonus increases the chance of a critical (resulting in an augment slot) but there is a base chance for a critical (which depends on your companion's affection and the difficulty of the item being crafted) for all crafting.
Unfortunately, you're going to need to wait until 1.2 rolls out. Currently, only weapons (produced by Armstech and Artifice) can be crafted as augmented orange schematics. Armormech and Synthweaving will acquire that capability with update 1.2.

A few folks have datamined the game files, and found that

All crew skills have a base crit chance based on difficulty:
Grey & Green= 15%
Yellow & Orange = 10%

...the affection crit maximum is 5%

I tested this on live using slicing, and found the same basic results.

So, a companion with 10k affection has about a 20% chance to crit on a crew skill, even without a companion bonus.

I haven't seen reliable numbers on how the companion bonuses influence those numbers, and haven't run enough missions with companions who have those bonuses to test it myself. (Still working on that one...)
