Just for illustration purposes ... note that I tend to use tiny little clear ziplocks just to make sure they don't ping off and disappear. I wouldn't have a clue where to find some more. The cross-over tube was purchased by the PO about 8 or 9 years ago from one of the parts suppliers in the UK and I believe it's an original item. As yet I haven't got around to replating them properly (I'd love to have some items like this plated in dull cadmium, but that's now illegal over here unless it's for the military). I think there might be a little freedom to adjust the tension on the clamps by pinching together or opening out the two wire 'arms', but I've not found that necessary.
p.s. I bought a handful of these Romablok 'spring' clamps, but in 20mm size, NOS, in Imola a year or so ago. No idea what they're for but I figured they might be useful some day.
