Step 1: Materials
3 Metal standoffs
Metal snapple cap or similar
Round Altoids tin
Small low profile motor
2 AAA batteries
Drill bit set
Quick Steel or other metal epoxy putty
Step 2: The battery assembly
First, take the 2 AAA batteries and line them up with the poles of the second opposite the first. like in any battery box. Cut a piece of aluminum foil the width of the 2 batteries and tape it on. Next strip the wires of the motor, with the positive lead twice as long. cut a rectangle of aluminum foil the same size as the one you taped to the bottom of the batteries. Put the positive wire in the middle and fold it over. Now fold the end of the wire over. Tape this to just the positive end of your battery pack tightly. Solder the end of the negative lead of the motor to the momentary switch. Now solder a short length of wire to the other lead of the switch, and wrap it in foil like you did on the positive lead. finish by taping it all together into a tight little pack.
