Introduction: DIY Simple DC Motor

by: Jacob Armstrong

Step 1: Materials

1. Paper clips.

2. Scissors.

3. Tape

4. Power source of some sort.

5. 20 Gage copper wire.

6. powerful magnet.

7. wire to connect power source and paper clip.

8. A round object so the copper wore takes form.

9. Thumb tacks (optional if you don't have tape)

10. Have fun!!!

Step 2: Step: 1

grab your copper wire and rap it around a round object tightly and after that take the two loose ends and twist them around the outer wire so it holds the shape and u have two little wings on each side of the copper ring that are 180 decrease from each other. Sand off the coding on the copper wire on the ends of the wings

Step 3: Step 2:

take two paper clips and bend them to where they cant hold the copper wire ball in the air.

Step 4: Step 3

Get your power source and hook the wires up to the paper clips and put the copper wire ball on the paper clips.

Step 5: Step 4

Tape the base of the paperclips down because the magnet will pull them other and put the magnet under the copper wire ball.

Step 6: Step 5

give the copper wire ball a push and it should start sinning on its own. if it doesn't then u have to make sure the wires on the copper ball are 180 decrease from each other then it should work!
