Crafting caster amulets

If I gamble for the amulet and then craft it, what is the minimum lvl required to have a chance to get all stats, and maximum amount of stats all the time?

it's slightly different, but the way i do it is see the random stats on the craft recipie you want, and then see what is the max affix that a rare amulet can get in that stat. it's not perfect, but it gives me a pretty good idea.

i believe d2data.net has the exact rolls for crafts, but just eyeballing it off of arreats is good enough for me.

This should cover your first question.
iLvl 71+ = 100% chance at 4 random magical affixes, plus the set crafted item properties.

Your second question: AFAIK, all random affixes will be just that. Random. It's all luck whether you'll get 3% mana steal or +30 strength. This is why it usually takes many tries to make a useful or valuable crafted item. Just make sure that the magical base item has been found in a level 71+ area or has been gambled with a cLvl 75+ character* so that you will always be sure to get 4 affixes.

*from AS, "The items generated for the Gamble stock are +5 Levels/-4 levels of your character's level with a minimum level of 5"

-5/+4 actually. The AS gambling page has so many errors that it's just pathetic for a Blizzard website.

Ah what I was looking after was this: +2 to a class skill(90). Is this the highest in the game?

What this means in that case is that the amu can spawn with 5 lvl lower. So assume a lvl 92 char, gamble lvl 87 amu. Crafted item will be (92+87)/2 = 89. So this means I actually have to be lvl 93 to get all possible stats 100% of the time? Gaah, that's high indeed, hmm, I guess the chance is just 10% to gamble for a -5 lvl amu though so it might be enough with 92...
