    I got a 6 volt battery and copper wire and a nail right now what...

    Wrap the copper wire around the nail (screw driver is better has the handle if you go too big battery wise you can get a shock- ask me how I know this!), then connect each end of the wire to the battery.... there ya go!

    Are you just goofing off or building something? It would kinda cool to build something that does something with an electromagnet... It would be kinda cool while goofing off, too!
