Step 1: Things You Will Need

so the two stores i had low's and michael's so here is the list.
1. copper wire
2. washer a small and large
3. an L.E.D light
4. baking clay for custom parts
5. silver hammer finish spray paint
6. hot glue gun
7. silver wire optional.
8. a clear thing under the cap of a glass candle sorry don't know what its called.
your ready to go

Step 2: Making Your Custom Parts

well take your clay and form a ring than add 3 flat pieces we will call this the 3 ring this will
play a big role in the reactor bake it and once it is hard spray paint it then we have a main part.

Step 3: The Ring

okay now the semi clear ring is easy to do just take copper wire and wrap it around for 10
sectors it will take long it will seem more movie accurate if you overlap also it will take long but
you can add silver thin wire on the sides of each copper piece for just the copper
wire and 10 sectors its about 20 minutes but be patient.

Step 4: Coming Together

okay here is where it is pieced together take the big washer and place it on the
light then glue it on then take your 3 ringed pice and glue it on the middle take the washer
and glue it on the top then take your completed copper pieced semi clear ring and
glue it on .

Step 5: Completion

finished here are some pics of the final prouduct.

Step 6: Conclusion

i hope this has helped and also suggestions or any questions are always welcome.

    I think that's a rubber "washer" from a candle lid, from his description on page 1. They put them in the lids of the jars to make an airtight seal. So just get yourself a candle and pull the washer out.

    Am I only one being to literal considering this not to be an accurate arc reactor since it doesn't produce its own power? Besides that, the final product looks really nice. You should put it on a stand like Pepper did.
