Make sure they're steel clips. You don't want zinc filled or anything like that. Steel holds up and conducts better. But I have seen people use them and safety pins for smaller objects.

If you are predominately dealing with small objects like individual coins or cartridge cases, could you build a small unit ie something that only holds say 3/4 pint of solution in a small tin??

Nice write-up and good photos, Ken.
I'll use a variable DC power supply I use to test aircraft instruments. Plastic tub and hardware cloth (screen) for sacrificial anodes.
