Default My DIY Stir Plate & My Trailer Trash Daughter

Well this build started a while back and got finished up today. I went and built the whole thing without taking pictures and tried to use it last night. It did not work. I took it apart and got it working but noisy the dang stir bar kept bouncing around. My wife almost went insane. So after taking my boys to school my daughter and I went to Orchard Supply Hardware and got a few new nuts and bolts. Here is the fix It works great and is nice and quiet now. Cayla will be much happier.
First I drilled 4 holes then I placed the bolts through and secured them. then I added a few more nuts to crate a spacer and glued the magnet to the fan. make sure you are aware of the polarity of the magnet my first attempt keep pushing the stir bar off of the magnet. it stirred but not like it was suppose to (and made one hello of a racket. then I bolted the fan to the top and gave it a try. It worked (YES) for the electric all i did was go to Radio Shack and get a project box and a potentiometer, an LED light, and the magnet from hell. wired it up and figured i would need some sort of heat sink so I tore it off the old CPU and cut it in half and glued it to the potentiometer. Fired it up and I have my stir plate. Oh and the trashy daughter is at the bottom. She got a hold of my do rag and decided it was a tubetop and skirt aparentally

Alright, wheres the daughter. Bunch of pervs.

What type of magnet you use? (If I were answering me, I would say a magnetic one)

Of course it was fast, you got a bunch of nerds and happy beer drinkers seeing a title that involves a woman.
