D&D 5E Balance Check: Magical Tinkering versus some Feats

There are no Artificers in my world. There is smog-tek, think steampunk, but with a lot of smoke, oils, and springs.

I'm currently considering using some elements from the Artificer to represent this versus developing a fully independent class of Teknicians. As many homebrewers know, I'll probably do both.

The case in question is that every race and/or cultural group starts with a Feat. All of the Ken, those that Know, start with Magic Initiate. The Kin, those that Love, start with a Beast Companion Feat similar to the Beastmaster Feature of that name.

Would Magical Tinkering alone be enough? Or would a single Infusion be more appropriate?

If so, magical tinkering is barely useful & likely far from even a bad feat like actor. As to judging if MT is "enough", what are some of the other feats your giving out?

As stated above, Magic Initiate and a Beast Companion.

So you would suggest adding at least an Infusion and maybe something else?
Probably yea. Repeating shot or one of the L2 replicate magic items & an infusion/item slot for it might do. The first one I'm guessing they cluld just buy so no big deal to make one. The second they aren't great but are at least useful to some.
