In the bottom of the same jar we make a small hole under the motor shaft. This can be done with an ordinary drill or by using an impeller (there will be less burrs). Having tried on the engine in place, we note two side holes for mounting bolts for it. Hardware is small, so do the holes for them with a drill 2.5-3 mm.

The guide tube is made from a high narrow jar. We cut the bottom and collar with metal scissors. Then we take any round rod, and we twist the tube of small thickness, with which we give the shape of a cone.

The joint of two edges of the sheet is cleaned with abrasive from amalgam.This needs to be done for a quality connection. To keep the tin shape, put on the edge of the tube rubber tie. We take a soldering iron, and with the help of a flux, we solder the entire joint.

We attach the base of the tube to the hole in the jar, and solder it with a soldering iron. The solder needs to go through the entire gate so that the connection is reliable. Our body should have the following form (photo).

The bottom should freely fit into the body (large can), without touching its side walls. Make a hole in the center with a drill or an awl, and divide the circle into six equal parts. To do this, you can use the protractor, noting from the center line of 60 and 120 degrees.

We mark the lines with notches with the help of metal scissors. We clean the marking with abrasive along the entire length of the solder. We also do it with petals.

Slightly curving the petals arc, we expose them one by one, and solder to the lid with a soldering iron. The center of the impeller must remain intact.

To transmit the torque from the engine to the impeller, use a plastic gear. For it, expand the hole with a suitable drill bit. Secure it with epoxy glue.

The electrical scheme of this homemade is simple. It involves a battery, which has two outgoing contacts for supplying electricity to the device (engine), and two incoming contacts for recharging. Solder to the engine two wires with a connector for battery contacts, and connect the two elements. Intermediate chain is a button. Push the button-switch to the side surface of the case, and glue it with hot glue.Also fasten and batteries.
