  Wolf 905A RSide.jpg - WOLF 905A HAND LAMP - Very hard to find Wolf model No. 905A hand lamp, steel lamp with 3 3/8 in. new old stock screw-on nickel-plated brass reflector (thanks to my good Alaska friend Neil Tysver), 7 1/2 in. high to top of bail, 3 1/8 in. base dia., with brass tag marked WOLF SAFETY LAMP CO OF AMERICA NEW YORK, U.S.A.  (This lamp is the first horizontal flame miners’ carbide hand lamp manufactured by Wolf Safety Lamp Co. of America.  The lamp was advertised for wet mines, a problem for Wolf’s vertical flame lamps, and is known to have been used in both Arizona and Montana mines.  It first shows up in Wolf advertising in the 1921 Keystone Metal-Quarry Mining Catalog and continued to be offered at least through the 1926 Keystone Metal-Quarry Mining Catalog.  The lamp was offered in both brass and steel and in both a half-shift and full-shift size and, unlike the Wolf model No. 856 hand lamp, it came with an adjustable water feed.  A stiff bridle lever lock closed and sealed the carbide canister to the lamp top.)
