Step 9: Put It Together
1 - Fasten one end of the stiff wire to the back of the battery holder using Sugru.
2 - Fashion a cup shaped tip from Sugru as shown to the other end of the wire. The inside is sort of cone shaped like the stamen.
3 - Fasten the motor securely to the stiff wire by wrapping it with un-insulated wire and soldering the wire. I did it this way because the
solder would not stick to my motor casing. Your's might solder fine.
4 - Solder the battery clip wires to the motor terminals. It doesn't matter which wire goes to which terminal.
5 - Fasten the wires going from the battery to the motor to the stiff wire using Sugru just to keep them out of the way.
6 - Install the batteries
7 - Snap only one terminal of the battery clip onto the battery holder (either one). Nothing will attach to the other terminal right now.
Now you and I both know there are a lot of different ways a person could go about building one of these things. You could use a lot of different materials too. Epoxy glue could replace the Sugru. A coat hanger could replace the stiff wire. You could even add a switch or bigger battery and motor if you want to. Just use what you got and build it to suit yourself.
