The goal is to design and construct a relay using materials found in most every home. Cardboard being the main material as well as paper fasteners and assorted cast-offs. The relay will be either SPST or SPDT with a coil voltage of 5 or 6 volts. The finished design must be able to withstand repeated cycles and be useful. This is part of an overall effort to construct as many electronic components from every day materials found in the average household as possible.
