You can watch the video, but If you want then check out the steps
Step 1: Materials
You're going to need;
- 1 3/4 inch circular neodymium magnet http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=neodymium+magnets+3%2F4&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aneodymium+magnets+3%2F4
- 20 gauge solid copper wire (10 inches)
- AA battery
- wire cutters
- ruler (optional)
Step 2: Assemble
measure 10 inches of the copper wire, and cut it. Then strip the plastic off the copper wire. After that attach the magnet to the bottum of the battery. Then take your copper wire and make it into a V shape. Then mold your wire around your battery. You can make it into any shape you want, just make sure it works.
Step 3: TroubleShoot
troubleshoot, and find out what way works best for your motor. I can't really help you here, but watch my video if you want a clearer image
