Step 1: BASE

    • For the base i've used small piece of plastic board
    • one side of plasic board is attached with double sided sticky tape
    • To the other side of tape all other parts will be held (used hot glue for extra strength)

    Step 2: MOTOR HOLDER

    • To hold the motor i've used soda can
    • one side of the can is placed on sticky layer of the tape,to increase the strength i've hot glued its edges

    Step 3: LIGHT SOURCE

    • Ive used led panel having 24 leds i got this from broken lamp
    • LED panel is glued to tape vertically
    • Connections are made from motor to led panel
    • To the end of motor shaft a plastic bottle cap is attached and hot glued

    Step 4: FLYWHEEL

    • For the flywheel ive used old cd's (2 of them are coupled together)
    • The other side of cap is glued to this flywheel
    • Handle is made to rotate the flywheel by gluing a small handle (plastic tube)

    Step 5: GENERATOR IS READY..
