Cut the pen using a knife or a cutting tool so it can fit both the motor shaft & screw driver. After cutting take a piece of waste plastic sheet and cover the motor shaft & then insert the chopped pen as shown in the image 1 & 2.

Now mix some metal paste and insert it to one side of the chopped pen as shown in the image 3.

Now insert the screw driver and add some more metal paste to secure it as shown in the image 4 & 5

Note : Leave the metal paste to dry for some time

Once everything is connected & soldered insert the motor into the PVC pipe. You can also add glue to secure the motor to the PVC Pipe (optional, mine was a perfect fit so did not use glue)

Take some cardboard sheet and mark the dimension of the pipe on the sheet and remove the excess with a help of a scissor.

Once cardboard sheet is cut make a hole in the center of the cardboard sheet and insert the wire through the hole and then glue it to the pipe & secure it with a insulation tape
