Picture of make a motor very easily

Today I am going to show how to make a motor very easily. For this you may not need more than ordinary things. It is easy and great for scientific classes and experiments.

Visit my profile:http://www.instructables.com/member/argha+halder/ to see some more of this type of interesting projects.

Step 1: Ingredients needed

Picture of ingredients needed

The things you will need are given below:
1)Copper wire roll(my one looks seriously dirty!)
2)AA battery
3)Two paper clip
4)A small piece of wood for the base

Tools needed:
2)A scissor
3)A sand paper

Step 2: Watch the video of the motor in action!

Step 3: Making the coil for the motor

Now take a roll of copper wire.Leaving some extra wire on the end start coilling the wire around the battery or any round thing.Coil the wire 20 times and leave some extra space at the end again. Now take the coil out carefully.

Step 4: Making the coil for the motor part 2

Make a knot around the coil with the extra wire on each side. You may even use tape to hold them together

Step 5: Making the coil for motor part 3(the dark magic occurs here!)

Now with sand paper fully remove the insulation of one end of wire. Some things are hard to express through words . So better see the hand drawn picture. Now on the end remove half of insulation of the wire cilyndrically.

Step 6:

Now take the two paper clips and straighten them using pliers. If they have insulation on them remove them. Now bend them as shown in the picture.

Step 7: Making the base

Now take wooden base.making two holes on each side measuring the distance of the legs of the paperclips. Now put the legs of paper clips in those holes and probably glue them.

Step 8: Setting everything up!

Now take the copper wire coil that we made and put it through the loops of the paper clips.now put a or probably 2 magnets under the coil. Now add a wire to each paper clip and put the wires on the battery. It will start to spin.if it does not then give it a push and it will start to spin.

oh and watch the video

well done argha.u have gr8 thinking capacity.even though being b.tech student i find your experiments very relevent.

I have some small recommendations. Fist using horseshoe-shaped magnet is good. And use some small disbalance weight, which oriented wire circle, when there is no electric power.

thanks for the idea! Doing some experimenting with that idea right now........

so naive , do not give ur address and phone number publicly . hope u understand

Nice! We will try it. In the US, look for "magnet wire", which is coated/insulated. Uncoated wire will get really hot!
argha halder (author)  earlyflyer1 year ago
Thanks for the words and suggestion!oh i did not use uncoated wire by the way .
We built it tonight. Works great! See it here:
