 Step 4: Make the six holes in a wooden piece and fix the screw in them.

Step 5: Take a curved steel plate and DC motor. Fix it in the cardboard using a drill machine and screw.

Step 6: Take a circle-shaped wooden piece and rectangular-shaped steel plate.

Step 7: Make holes in them using a drill machine.

Step 9: Attach the wooden piece to the motor shaft and secure it with iron sheet glue.

Step 10: Attach the blade to the other hole of the plate and fix it with the screw.

Step 11: Cut the rectangular wooden piece measuring the size of the plate and attach these pieces using the hot glue gun.

Step 12: Cut a wooden piece (as shown in the picture).

Paste the small bent steel plate in it using glue.

Step 13: Make a hole in the small cuboid-shaped wooden piece using a drill machine and attach a movable screw to the hole.

Step 14: Slightly remove the blade and check if the blade fixes on the wooden piece.

Step 15: Attach the movable screw wooden piece in it.

Step 16: Fix again on the circles wood.

Step 17: Fix the wooden piece on the top of the drill machine and screw.

Step 18: Drip some engine oil on the blade to make a smooth movement.
