    I also got an argyle 18 with this same plan. I paid $40 for the camera, and it took an hour out there and an hour back. I found an 11x14 holder on ebay for $135 and snagged it. There are a couple for $150-175, but many are $300-400, so start shopping for the deals! My big issue is the back. I want to try and salvage an old one, if possible. If I can't find one, I guess I'll try to build one. You can find 11x14 back springs and GG on ebay every so often, so, you'd just need to cut some wood and cobble it all together - and pray it was all square and sturdy!

    Anyway, I'll eventually find a way to add simple movements to the front and back, and take it off the legs/support it currently needs. We'll see how it goes.

    by the way, here is mine:

    Glad to hear that there's another one is in this game.

    Honestly, so far I've done nothing more than move the camera a couple of times to get it out of my way.

    I really need to win the lottery so I'll have time to take care of all this important stuff that generates no income.

    Not sure about the G23. I'm not much of an Argyle expert.

    The model 18 I originally posted about is a horizontal process camera.

    Yeah, I haven't done anything except pick up an 11x14 film holder off ebay. I'm going to buy an old 11x14 back with ground glass and attach it to the rear standard. Then, eventually, I'll do more mods... once I feel comfortable using it. Eventually...

    I too have recently gotten an Argyle camera. It's the model 23 which is 20x24. Came with a NuArc 300mm lens (which only covers at 1:1) and the vacuum generator to hold the film in the back. I'm going to make it into a 16x20 camera and then most likely sell it. (maybe a wetplate version if there's any interest). I'd like to see others ideas on this subject so please post pictures if you have something to show.
