Make Your Own Pager Motor? Answered

Does anybody know how to make a pager motor out of a regular motor?

Do you know "terminal block"?
It's easy to find, it's cheap, cut the plastic off and you've got a bit o'brass with screws in it - screw it to your motor-shaft.


Stick a small rubber eraser on the end of the motor so that is is slightly offset. You can change it to get the right vibration that makes it feel really good.

A pager motor is just a small motor with an offset weight on the shaft. So attach some sort of weight to one side of your motor's shaft.

Which part of the pager motor are you interested in? The small size or the vibration?
