The Venture Company have a small research facility west of here, just past the Sludge Fen. I don't know very much about what they're doing, but did manage to discover that they're experimenting with something called a "samophlange".
Now what the heck is a samophlange? Well, whatever it is, I want to examine it, so I need someone to go get it.
I obtained a copy of their control system operating manual, you should be able to figure out how to disengage the samophlange from it.
A variety of buttons, levers, and blinking lights are somewhat erratically arrayed on the face of the control console. A small gauge indicates that the apparatus is currently operating within optimal levels, and indicates that control valves one through three are currently open. There is a small keyhole set into the lower right side of the control panel.
