Welcome to the introduction.
Step 1: Materials
Paperclip Sandpaper Copper wire D battery Rubber band Magnet
Step 2: Getting What You Need
Step 1: Measure the copper wire to about the length on your arm ( you can use more if you feel like you need too)
Step 3: Scraping Off Enamel
Step 2: Scrape off the red color enamel with the sandpaper on one half of the wire. ( One half of the wire should be shaved to have a silver color, the other should still be red.)
Step 4: Wrapping the Wire
Step 3: Be as precise as you can with this step. Wrap the wire around the battery until in it forms a circle matching the battery.
Step 5: Tying the Wire
Step 4: Before you wrap the whole wire, leave about an inch of sting loose before you wrap and after you wrap, so when you finish the circle there should be two loose ends.
Step 5: Carefully slide the wire off the battery so you have a circle formation of wire.
Step 6: Tying the Wire #2
Step 6: Take the two ends and loop them in-and-out of the circle on opposite ends. Make sure they are across to each other. The end wire should have a look something like this ---O---- ← something like that.
Step 7: Paperclips
Step 7: Take the paperclips and open them up to look like a C ( Not the Spongebob and
Sandy make an S in that worm episode)
Step 8: Wrapping the Battery
Step 8: Use the rubber band to hold the paper clips and each end of the battery. Its easier than using string.
Step 9: Place the magnet on top of the battery
Step 9: Finishing the Product
Step 10: Now that the wire is wrapper up, shave the side you didn't shave. (Only half the top of the other half not the bottom
Step 11: Rest the copper wire on top of the paper clips and it should spin away :D
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
