Helping Cpl. Farber - Fixing the Camp McCarran Food Processor
The Camp McCarran food processor is broken, and it's really putting a damper on his cooking abilities.
If you have 80 points in Repair you should be able to just fix it with what's there and be done in an instance.
If you don't have the points in Repair, then you'll need to go around and scavenge a bit. Note that a number of the items can be taken from the Camp McCarran kitchen, if you're willing to steal. Just crouch down behind a counter and steal what you need.
For the most part, I'd suggest just keeping an eye open while you explore. I actually found H&H Tools a horrible looting location. You're better off going to Cerulean Robotics. It has more rare equipment, weaker enemies, no traps and it's tied in with "Wang Dang Atomic Tango."
You can also buy a fair number of the miscellaneous items from Miguel's Pawn Shop in Westside. They're fairly cheap, and a number of items can be stolen from inside his store. Just look along the shelves.
Pilots lights are in most ovens. Check houses and kitchen while you loot. You just need two.
Pressure cookers are also in most kitchens, along with a normal pot.
Conductors are generally in toolboxes. Check toolboxes while you explore, buy two or check out Michael Angelo's workshop. He should have a few lying around in his toolboxes. Sensor modules are also often in toolboxes.
Scrap metal is fairly easy to come by if you kill robots. You can also just buy some at the pawn shop or Gibson's scrap yard.
Firehose nozzles are a bit of a pain, since they're a little rare. You might find a few in Camp McCarran's firehouse boxes. Check abandoned buildings for the boxes until you find two.
Steam gauge assemblies are a bit of a pain, along with the four fission batteries. Luckily, you don't have to go far. Go outside and approach the main entrance to Camp McCarran. On the right side of the terminal building, past the dummies, is a small outdoor garage. There should be a steam gauge assembly and four fission batteries on the shelf. They also should just count as salvage, not stealing.
You can buy another steam gauge assembly from Chet in Goodsprings or at Gibson's scrap yard.
Once you have everything that you need, use the spare parts to fix the food processor. You'll get a discount on Farber's food supplies and a fair bit of experience.
