Hi, a partner and I are making an electromagnetic motor run however is there a way for it to pick up heavier objects? We've been given 2 metres of wire, two magnets and we're trying to establish a way that the motor can pick up the most amount of weight without going over 6 or 7 volts.
Thanks in advance!

I find this a bit confusing. Are you making an electromagnet or a motor?

I'm actually supposed to be making a motor however I am making a motor run by the use of two magnets. I will be joining an axle to it to lift pennys up. I'm just not sure what i can use as a frame or an axle to reduce friction or to lift the best amount of weight (pennys) by only using around 5 or 6 volts. ( 9 volts might chew up the wires)
Thanks!
Corey
