My repair kit consists of the Lee Oskar kit with a few additions:

1. A chromatic tuner (can't see the point in tuning a reed without it!)

2. Some additional files.  I'm not in love with the files in the Lee Oskar
kit.  I picked up a great set of jeweler's files from a jewelry repair

3. A couple extra screwdrives.  Sure, Lee Oskar gives you the tools to get
into THEIR harps, but how many people JUST use Lees?  A small flathead
screwdriver is invaluable if you play Marine Bands.

The most important thing to carry?  More harps!
