Yes, I had done that. On the SAVXO I used the small end of the paper
clip and left enough length on one side so it extended out a ways
from the crystals. I slipped the clips around the middle to the
crystals with the end sticking out and soldered a wire across those
ends. A wire was then connected between the crystals and the ground
hole. Sounds like your idea is similar.
