Plans for this simple motor?

  1. Oct 4, 2011 #1

    I can't find any info on how to make this motor.

    Does anyone have any plans or could explain the process?

    Does the axle/rod have to be a certain metal?

    - I feel like I don't even belong on this forum compared to you guys. Forgive me if I look stupid for asking this question. I just figured this would be the best forum to find out.

    One of our class assignments in grade 9 was to build an electric motor.

    That axle must be conductive. And able to withstand some intense heat.
