Interesting to see the interpretations

Thanks everyone,........ the scary thing was that it wasn't my coin so I had to really tread carefully. How trusting is that!

Thank you

Don't know what Fisher uses, but a common method is to use a phone charger. Just attach crocodile clips to each wire :thumbsup:

Hi Steve, I used a 'phone charger, two crocodile clips with one connected to a stainless steel spoon and the other to the coin.
The spoon was clamped to the inside of a small jar filled with a warm solution of salt and water. The warm water helps the salt dissolve quickly and the temperature also aids the process.
If the connection is good on both the coin and spoon, the coin will start fizzing. If the spoon starts to fizz, the connections are back-to-front.
Just swap the clips around. When you have the right combination, mark the spoon and clip with a same-coloured band/tape so they are both red for example. This helps for future zapping so that you are sure you have the right connections if the coin doesn't fizz.
If the coin doesn't fizz, there will be a bad connection with the coin clip due to the coating on the coin.

WARNING

Use of a saline solution will give off incredibly harmful chlorine gas so you absolutely MUST use this in a well ventilated area. :thumbsup:

As ever, you undertake electrolysis at your own risk
