About: I like to get back to the technical roots and try to make things without getting too complicated. Thanks for feedback https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCon08qxJhPLYbweaaLxEqsw https://www.facebook.com/pages/E...

Here I show you how to make an electromagnet from rubbish.

Besides a power source you only need 2 things.

Step 1:

What you need:

Power Source ( USB TTL Module 5V OUT)

Ferrous Thing ( Screwdriver)

Copper Coil from Electro Rubbish

- also used but not necessary:

Breadboard

Jumper Wire

Voltmeter

Step 2: Unwind Copper Coil Adn Rewind

Unwind copper coil, rewind it on the screwdriver and connect everything as show on schematics.

Step 3: Finish

Now you have a simple electromagnet.

At 5 volts, magnetism is beginning to work noticable.

    So where to begin and where to end? ...everything that is broken can be used to harvest parts.
