before u can get him to spawn there are steps to do:

Calibration Device Screws, Calibration Device Schematics, Calibration Device and Clockwork Driveshaft are for the task Spy Reports. The Calibration Device is a ground spawn in Steam Factory at loc +44 +132 +88. The other 3 items very rarely drop from trash mobs.

[Sat Jan 19 20:47:05 2008] You say, 'Hail, a fan mechanic'
[Sat Jan 19 20:47:05 2008] Your task 'Spy Reports' has been updated.
[Sat Jan 19 20:47:05 2008] a fan mechanic barely turns to acknowledge you, his hair rustling slightly in the breeze from the fan behind him, 'Did someone [send] you to speak with me?'

[Sat Jan 19 20:51:54 2008] a fan mechanic regards you indifferently -- looks like he would wipe the floor with you!
[Sat Jan 19 20:51:56 2008] You say, 'send'
[Sat Jan 19 20:51:56 2008] a fan mechanic says 'Well, who sent you?'

[Sat Jan 19 20:52:34 2008] You say, 'spymaster gurtrude'
[Sat Jan 19 20:52:35 2008] a fan mechanic nods with relief, 'It's good that you've contacted me, my name is Cogly, I have been unable to report back to Gurtrude due to the increased security here... All thanks to the new head engineer, Gearwhir... He is causing all sorts of problems for us, and needs to be [eliminated] at all costs.'
[Sat Jan 19 20:52:57 2008] You say, 'eliminated'
[Sat Jan 19 20:52:58 2008] a fan mechanic lowers his voice slightly, 'Gearwhir is highly intelligent; he is also extremely paranoid and is very careful to avoid being exposed to any potential threat... I've been here gathering information for quite some time and I've worked out a [plan] to lure him out into a location we control, and ambush him...'

[Sat Jan 19 20:53:13 2008] You say, 'plan'
[Sat Jan 19 20:53:13 2008] a fan mechanic ***** his head to one side, 'I've noticed that Gearwhir seems to have an amazing ability to monitor and maintain almost all parts of this facility... Any time the slightest problem arises, he seems to be on site almost immediately to fix the problem... We will need to gather a few [parts] first, but I believe we can exploit this fact to ambush and neutralize him.'
[Sat Jan 19 20:53:31 2008] You say, 'parts'
[Sat Jan 19 20:53:32 2008] a fan mechanic says 'One of our other agents has managed to surreptitiously disable and secure a steamwork in one of the main manufacturing rooms... If we can gather the parts to create a [warped driveshaft], we can install it into the steamwork and reactivate it. With any luck, it will cause enough of a commotion to draw out Gearwhir, and enable us to strike before they have a chance to react.''

[Sat Jan 19 20:54:25 2008] You say, 'warped driveshaf'
[Sat Jan 19 20:54:25 2008] a fan mechanic says 'To create a warped driveshaft we need to liberate a regular Clockwork Driveshaft from one of the steamworks in the factory... Unfortunately they are a bit delicate, so you may have to try a few times to find one that isn't damaged. We will also need a calibration device; you can probably find a Calibration Device in one of the storage rooms. Some of the engineers here sometimes carry Calibration Device Screws and Calibration Device Schematics, we will need those items as well in order to set and use the calibration device to warp the Clockwork Driveshaft... Once we're done, we can [insert] the Warped Clockwork Driveshaft into the disabled clockwork in the manufacturing room.''
[Sat Jan 19 20:54:56 2008] You say, 'insert'
[Sat Jan 19 20:54:57 2008] a fan mechanic sighs softly, 'Unfortunately I will not be able to leave my post to assist you... Once you insert the Warped Clockwork Driveshaft, the steamwork should begin to malfunction and draw out Gearwhir... He's not to be underestimated, so be sure you have backup before you engage him.... If you are successful, be sure to search him carefully for any information, if you find anything of importance, deliver it to Gurtrude at once.'
