Apricorn crafting DC; Looking for more detailed info

I'm new to the system and I'm trying to find information on the crafting DC to make apricorn balls. All I can find in the PTU 1.05 Core book is this.

Apricorn Balls
 

Prerequisites: Novice Survival or Adept Technology
Effect: As an Extended Action, you may craft Apricorns
into their corresponding Poké Ball. Use of this Feature
requires access to a Poké Ball Tool Box.


Poké Ball Tool Box
 
: These tool boxes let those with the
know-how craft and repair Poké Balls. They cost $500
and can be found in most Poké Marts.


The closest I can find to a standard check is repairing balls.

Poké Ball Repair
 
Prerequisites: Basic Balls or Apricorn Balls
Effect: You may attempt to fix any Poké Ball that
has failed to capture a Pokémon and broke. Make a
Technology Check with a DC of 15. If you succeed, the
Poké Ball is fixed and is treated as if it had not broken. If
you fail, the ball is permanently broken. Requires access
to a Poké Ball Tool Box.


Am I missing something? Should craft be the same difficulty as an extended action as repair? Or should it be lower or higher? This looks like an action that should have a set difficulty with possible situational modifiers.

Or is it intended to be an autopass after spending an hour or so?

Thank you. Can you point me to where it's specified? Shouldn't pokeball repair also be an autopass in that case?

It's not specified anywhere, because the assumption is that if a feat tells you you can do something, you can do it without needing a skill check unless it specifically says so.

For repair, it specifically says so.
