    I've been using my original set for about 6 years now and have never had a problem with them and NO rust.

    B and H in NYC sells bags of film clips for about $7.00. Alternatively, binder clips, available at any large stationary store, work quite well too (Staples has them, item #10667. They straddle a metal clothes hanger and hold the film securely.

    Wooden clothespins are great. Avoid plastic clothespins, I've had trouble with film slipping from them!

    I learned on apug that if you take apart the clothes clip and flip the parts and spring, you can make a very nice set that pinches very accurately.

    Its a little hard to describe, but the rear part that you normally squeeze down on, becomes the holding part after moving the spring back.

    In the film industry they are C47's and the reversed ones Newt mentions are C74's

    ordinary wooden clothes pins - just as suggested by Ansel Adams himself.

    the version as pointed out that I use is indeed the C74 at the bottom.

    Clothespins are definitely a good old standby for drying film, used them a fair amount in the past.. The roach cl.. um, er,... hemostats would likely work great too.
    I would love to use the "FP" flash setting on my camera, but I cannot find "Flash Powder" anywhere... such is life.
