I'm trying to build a simple motor with the help of some youtube tutorials but nothing seems to spin... so I figures ok let's connect the ends of the battery and see if that the problem. If I get electrocuted then everything is all right lol. I tried with 2 batteries and nothing happened... Does someone have an idea what the problem might be? I'm using a 1.5V battery, is that maybe too little?
The wire isn't isolated, so I really have no idea what the problem is.
