Don't have the money to buy a dremel? We'll now you cand for less than 5$!!!!
- motor- 9v battery- 2 coins (I prefur pennies)- lots of wires- 2 containers- electric tape
- screwdriver- knife- wire strippers- hot glue gun
Use the tip of the screwdriver to hammer a hole for the wires in the first container.
Atach the wire to the motor and tape together
Put in motor and glue on with hot glue
Attach one of the ends of the wire to the battery and glue on to secure
Use electric tape to attach the wire, then glue the tape
Glue the penny on the container as shown in the image
Tape another wire to the penny and add the second container
Tape the other end of the wire that is attached to the penny to the back of the second penny
Glue the penny to the container
Secure the wire that is attached to the battery so that the tip is over the penny
Glue the second container secure
Tape the dremel but don't cover the penny
Smash a bottle cap and do as shown in pics
When your hand holds the dremel it pushes the wire on the penny completing the circuit causing the motor to spin.
very excited to try at home...just wanna ask, how to make the blade mount? the image lil bit blurry :(greets from Idn :D
also you should change the name of this project in "dremel-like diy cutter" or "dremel-wannabe cutter"
nice. now make a circuit that controls the speed of the motor using a 555 timer and a power transistor and i think you should try lithium cells connected in series. it's gonna be really powerful
XLG has a good point, this is a very inventive project, I especially like your 2 penny switch
Dremel is a registered trademark and has copyright on the name.
What you have it as best a low powered rotary tool (this is the proper term).Neat idea though.
