    • Follow the circuit printed on the paper as you build. It will show the placement of the motor, battery, and LED.

    • We are using a 3mm LED, which is smaller than a standard 5mm LED. The LED is optional, and your circuit will work fine without it.

    • The LED legs may be too long. You can easily cut them with a wire cutter or a pair of scissors. (Hold the part you are cutting so it doesn't fly away!)

    • You'll need to insert the tape into the slit so it folds over on the outside of the Classic Mac. (This is what allows our switch to work.)
