Step 1: Materials
You will need:
-an old CD player
-a AA battery
-a small,thin piece of plastic
Step 2: Remove the Motor
Remove the motor from the CD player with the 2 wires that attach to it.Then strip the end of those wires.
Step 3: The Negative End
Touch the wires on opposite ends of the battery. If the motor doesn't run, try switching it around. Once you find that out, tape the wire that is supposed to touch the negative(-) side of the battery onto it.
Step 4: The Positive End
Rip a piece of duct tape about 1 and 1/2 inches long and 1/4 wide. then rip a small piece 1/4 by 1/4. Lay down the longer piece adhesive side up and stick the small piece in the middle.
Step 5: Makinng the "Switch"
Take the thin piece of plastic and cut it 1 inch long and 1/4 inch wide. Then cut a small hole near the end.
Step 6: Putting on the Switch
Place the wire that is supposed to touch the positive end(+) and Put the piece of duct tape that you made in step 4 over it tightly. Then slide the "switch" in between the wire and the battery.
Step 7: Finish
When you pull the switch, the wire will be in contact with the battery,the motor will run. Tape the wire onto the battery so it won't slide when you move the switch.
