Not sure exactly how to contact the organization on-line. I collect
older cameras using 120 or 35mm. The other day I went to the
Brimfield flea market and came home with a C-2, a C-3, and an
International Research (if memory serves me correctly) Macro kit for C
or C-2 Argus. I got the lens off the C-2 and attached the macro
adapter ring to one of the two extension tubes that can be threaded
into the lens mount. Seems to work fine. The kit consists of a set
of four legs that screw into the adapter ring, two sets of leg
inserts, two stackable extension tubes, two metal plates of different
sizes painted white on one side and black on the other into which the
legs can be fit, an adapter ring that holds to an extension tube by a
set-screw, and a ground glass insert to facilitate focusing. The
entire caboodle along with a set of instructions is in a rather
elegant black leather covered box marked ARGUS in the top left outside
corner. It's fitted with a formed blue plush insert. The plush is
sun faded but true color under the plates. No, I am not soliciting
offers but am curious as to whether or not this item is familiar to
any of you. I do intend to use it to make some negatives and prints.
