From past experience (albeit only a few days of it!) nothing is guaranteed to work until you try it out but here's hoping...
If you do go looking for a splitter, I would suggest getting one that is a y shaped wire rather than one which is a solid thing with a jack and two sockets. I have the ws4 adaptor plate and the socket doesn't look very strong, so plugging in something with a bit of flex will put less stress on the little solder joints, the adaptor is cheapish but not all that cheap for what it is.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

Personally, the only cleaning I do on hammered silver is a gentle wash with water and that's it. each to their won as some people like to have them shiny, just not me. Unfortunately I do not watch you tube videos :thumbsup:
