Before you make a compressor for the aquarium with your own hands, we will prepare the following materials and tools: a cover from a plastic bottle, a piece of rubber, a base in the form of a wooden board, a plastic tube, a small motor and an old battery for it, as well as hot glue and the usual balloon, still need an old plastic card.
To make an aquarium compressor with our own hands, we remove the seal from the plastic cover and apply space for the holes under the marker. We make holes with scissors.
The plastic tube should fit there.
Next, we cut a piece of a horseshoe from a piece of rubber seal, which we glue to the inside of the cover.
The next stage in the manufacture of an aquarium compressor with your own hands is to build a structure like a drum. This part will pump the air.
We stretch a piece of the ball onto the lid, then fix it all with scotch tape.
With a plastic card with your own hands you need to make a detail of an aquarium compressor in the form of a circle, a little smaller cover.
To one part of the plastic with a hot glue we fix a small stick from the candy, with the other side glue everything to the rubber part of the drum.
Cut off a small piece of glue for the gun. We make two holes with an awl: one in the center, the second closer to the edge.
In the central insert the motor in the side of a small piece of wire.
Next, we fix on the basis of the first motor. Then we try on the position of the second part, cut off the excess and combine everything into one.
It remains only to connect the tube and the motor, and the aquarium compressor is ready with your own hands.
