Work is Never Done is a side quest available in The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles.

Background[edit | edit source]

In Bliss, Tove the Unrestful is looking for calipers and tongs to build a boat that will fly on water. He pays five gold for each caliper or tongs.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Bring Tove calipers and tongs when found. The mission will be completed if the Hero hands over a total of 100 (or more) tongs and/or calipers.

The easiest way to get calipers/tongs is to go to the Imperial City, in the Waterfront and Market District, as the crates and barrels there contain a lot of calipers, which respawn. Additionally, the trolls found in Tidewater Cave carry up to seven calipers each.

  • Update: Upon receiving the quest:

Tove the Unrestful is looking for calipers and tongs. He says he'll pay five gold each for them, I don't remember agreeing to help him, but somehow I am.

  • Update: Upon finishing the quest:

Tove seems to have run out of uses for calipers and tongs. However, I earned a tidy little sum off of him in the mean time.
