At least six repair outfits were produced by carbide lamp manufacturers including Justrite, Auto-Lite, Guy’s Dropper, Grier, Hansen and Dry-Lite with the last four being quite rare.  Justrite produced the most varieties of repair outfits both in content variation and style.  In general, most repair outfits were made of heavy cardboard stock with dividers that contained a variety of parts necessary to repair malfunctioning lamps.  A label was typically mounted on the inside of the box top such that when the lid was opened to an upright position as shown here, an attractive display resulted.  Some manufacturers, notably Justrite, also placed a label on the outside of the box lid.  The Justrite No. 2 repair parts outfit was first listed in the Justrite Form 101 brochure sometime after May 7, 1912; the Justrite Nos. 1 and 2 repair parts outfits (the No. 1 outfit had twice the parts of the No. 2 in a green box 10 in. wide x 8 in. deep x 2 in. high) were carried and listed by Justrite in every catalog at least up through No. 10A in 1939; the content and quantities of parts in the outfit changed over the years as the Justrite lamps offered for sale changed.  Justrite also made two metal repair outfits that are highly prized by collectors.  The No. 3 repair outfit is 15 in. x 10 1/2 in. x 4 in. and the case is white painted steel with a glass top with Justrite in gold letters with red outlining on the case front.  The parts are contained in a drawer that slides out the back of the case.  The No. 3 outfit first showed up in the Justrite CM 10 brochure sometime after July 1915.  The No. 4 outfit case is also white painted steel with similar lettering as the No. 3 case but is somewhat larger at 15 in. wide x 10 1/2 in. deep x 13 in. high.  The No. 4 outfit includes a rear shelf that displays samples of up to 5 Justrite carbide lamps.  The 1919 Justrite loose leaf catalog first listed the availability of the No. 4 display case which was only sold with a larger assortment of lamps. The cost to the dealer including 5 dozen lamps, repair parts and case was $67.50, a tidy sum in those days.  It is thought that only large hardware stores and mine supply firms with substantial numbers of mining customers would order such a display which accounts for the rarity of such outfits today.
