This is my enrty in the Valetines Day Contest. It is my (hopefully) original idea to put a motor a on a tiger's tail, and make it spin.
This instructable is easy. You can gift this lil' tiger to your special someone, for a great CUTE gift.
Basic soldering skills are need.
Soldering iron (35 watt max)
Electrical Tape and Wires
A Button or switch (radioshack has em)
Needle and Thread
Step 1: Gather Your Parts
To get started, gather up some wires, a small electric motor, a AA battery and some thick copper wire.
Take a screwdriver, or pencil, and tightly wrap the wire around, forming a coil. But make sure you are still able to slide the coil to the motor well.
But don't place it on yet, that will make soldering difficult.
Next, take your switch or button and solder two lone wires, to each side of the switch. Mine has six, but most will only have two.
Then solder one wire to the motor, and another wire, coming from the switch to the motor.
I hope you're with me
