Additionally, if the Critical [crafting skill] amplifiers work at all, they do not affect the displayed chance in the companion window.
And, to quote myself from another thread:

Itís probably not whole percentage points, because then a full suit would give like +90% chance which any way you slice it should be a near doubling of critical outcomes, far more than what people are seeing. So if itís working at all, itís a very small increase, in which case you would probably need to do tens of thousands of crafts to see a statistically significant difference. Bioware in its 6.0 crafting wisdom made certain to ensure it would be extraordinarily difficult to craft that much in any decent amount of time.

There are some mod-specific amplifiers that may be more useful for overall gameplay (Mount speed, stim longevity, durable equipment, repair costs, featherweight), but nothing superior in a dedicated crafting suit.
