    Question 11 months ago on Introduction

    Hi, so sorry to bother you. I want to try building this. I have found 3 vibrate motors, similar to the one pictured. I am having trouble removing them from the board. They appear to be glued? I went to YouTube to see how to remove, but none of the videos I found, have the issue I do. Do you have any advice?

    Excellent! So, it is about the vibration of electromagnet, like ticker timer?

    The small motor starts making tunrs, and the unbalanced piece in the shaft makes the vibration, somehow like the ticker timer
