Your next step will depend on what you are planning to do. If you are going to use your electrolytic coin cleaner a lot and on both large and small coins, you should make additional anode/cathode connecting sets with larger clamps. If not, affix the alligator clips to the wires as shown on Page 12 of my "Electrolytic Rust Removal" tutorial, and proceed to page 11.

Prepare one "male" plug with a red wire to which you will connect the positive wire end, and two "female" sockets with red wires to which you will affix the connector clips.
