Here I show you how to make an electromagnet from rubbish.

Besides a power source you only need 2 things.

Step 1:

What you need:

Power Source ( USB TTL Module 5V OUT)

Ferrous Thing ( Screwdriver)

Copper Coil from Electro Rubbish

- also used but not necessary:

Breadboard

Jumper Wire

Voltmeter

Step 2: Unwind Copper Coil Adn Rewind

Unwind copper coil, rewind it on the screwdriver and connect everything as show on schematics.

Step 3: Finish

Now you have a simple electromagnet.

At 5 volts, magnetism is beginning to work noticable.
