Roman soldiers did need to deploy a range of skills other than skill at arms and I think it's fairly likely that an auxiliary cohort at a frontier post would have had the services of armourers, saddlers, farriers, etc, although possibly not a swordsmith.

Issue weaponry would presumably have come up with other ordnance stores mades at government works father south.
