Step 1: Materials
D-battery, Flat magnet, Rod of some sort(I used a screw), Copper wire, Casing(optional), Flat thin piece of plastic(optional), Switch(optional),
Step 2: Assembly
Put the screw on the negative part of the battery. Next you need to put the magnet on the screw head(you see why I use a nail) and finish the circuit by attaching the wire to the positive part of the battery and touch/attach the other end to the magnet
Step 3: Optional
After everything else you may get casing and use a switch that will move the plastic in between the wire and positive section of your battery cutting off your circuit saving energy and making practical use possible (sorry but I have no pictures of this)
Step 4: WARNING
this motor can fly apart if not secured and you'd probably not like a screw in the eye
