Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
In this case I will use these materials, but can be changed depending on the bottle and the style you want.
You can any type of bottle.
1- 1 Small Bottle of 2L or the bottle that we want.
2- 1 Tulip (Screen) of the desired color and choosing the size according to the bottle that we have chosen.
3- 1 Cable with switch (Color black if the bottle is dark, white if transparent).
4- 1 Cap, I recommend an E14 and black color if the chosen cable is black, white if it is white⚠OJO⚠ It must have a thread like the image to be able to put the tulip.
5- 1 ∅ 3 mm hollow threaded rod. (Can be found in an electricity shop).
6- Cork or synthetic cap, (I recommend synthetic as the image 4 white background). Their measurements will be according to the diameter of the nozzle of the chosen bottle.
7- 1 ∅ 9 mm Glass Drill Bit.
Step 2: We Prepare the Bottle
1- We encintamos the point where we want to realize the orifice forming an asterisco so that the drill does not move.
2- Wet the drill bit in water so it will not get hot with friction.
3- We drill no more than 10 seconds in a row so that the drill bit and the bottle are not too hot.
⚠ IMPORTANT ⚠ Put the drill in the NEVER-HITCH screwdriver mode as it may explode the bottle.
4- Perform the process of images 2 and 3 successively until the hole is drilled (image 4) and do not drill followed as indicated in step 3.
I would only clean the remains.
Step 3: We Make the Connections
1- We make a hole in the plug of the diameter of the hollow rod.
2- We glue in the hole and insert the hollow rod halfway or so, letting it protrude slightly.
3- We passed the cable through the hole in the bottle (image 3), push it to the nozzle of the bottle.
4- Once passed through the bottle ⚠INTRODUCE THE CABLE FIRST ⚠ by the hollow rod stuck in the plug.
5- Remove the bush and screw it to the hollow rod that protrudes from the plug.
6- Connect the cable to the bushing, reassemble the bushing and insert the cap into the nozzle of the bottle with a slight force to cover it, remaining as the image 3.
7- We make the positioning of the tulip in the bush (for that reason it has to be like the image in step 1 "materials").
OPTIONAL: Add a rubber grommet or insert hot silicone between the perforated glass and the cable to prevent it from moving (image 4).
