Item breakdown depends on the repair skills of the Exile... not the one using the workbench. Yes, it's a flaw, but that's the way it is. In the Palace battle, then it's the one assigned to lead the team on Duxan.
You should push Exile's repair to 20 to get the maximum number of components per item. If you use guardian or sentinel, then also get the 'repair cross-class skill' feat. Save your items until your repair skills reach 20 to maximize what you get.
