Haircut Machine Into an Electric Car

Introduction: Haircut Machine Into an Electric Car

About: I always liked making stuff and when my grandfather showed me Instructables I became an addict. I don't have any degrees yet but I'm working on my aeronautics engineering degree :-P

 Is Your haircut machine broken and you don't know what to do with its parts? 
Why won't you use the parts to upgrade your toy car into an electric one?

in this  guide I'll teach you how to use parts of your haircut machine to upgrade your toy car.

What you'll need:

Haircut machine (it's important that the engine and the charging part is working)
A toy car 
A rubber

2 AA batterer

Step 1: Preparing the Engine

Open your haircut machine, be careful on the engine and the charging part .
Now attach something round to the top of the engine, I used the top of a mechanical pencil. 
After that I tied 2 electric wires to the part the i attached it will keep the rubber on the engine.

Step 2: Attaching Engine

Use hot glue to glue the engine and its parts to the car like described in the photo.
I recommend to also glue a gear to the pole of the back wheels it will make the car a bit slower but it will have more power.

***Very important!! attach the engine in the correct way so the car drives forward ;)

Step 3: Finishing Up

Just like in the photo connect between the engine and the gear/ wheels pole.

You're finished, now your chargeable electric car is ready for a test. 

Step 4: Additions

Like in other guides i uploaded i like to add something to the product that will make it even cooler so here i added a led under the car, here is a photo.
I glued to bottom of the car 2 AA batteries and soldered it to a switch and to a led.

Step 5: That's It

I hope you enjoyed this guide, if you have any questions I will answer them happily.

    If you haven't put the motor the correct way, you can twist the rubber band than you drive the opposite way
