Project 4—Putrid Stink Machine This device is truly an evil invention that has to be personally endured in order to fully appreciate its disgusting effectiveness. I have tortured my nose for days devising an effective stink generator, and I can assure you that the project presented here can fill a room with the most putrid smell you will ever have the misfortune of inhaling. Before I get into the gross details, let’s talk a little about the device and how it works. The stink machine is another 555 timer-activated device that switches a relay on in order to carry a somewhat large amperage directly into a low-value resistor.
Depending on how much current it takes your relay coil to energize, the 4700 µF capacitor may give you a few knocks per second, or less than one. You will have to experiment a little here, but you are aiming for a knocking repetition that sounds like someone rapping at the door. If you cannot find large value capacitors, just install several in parallel and add their values together to create a larger capacitor with a longer relay holding time. Two 4700 µF capacitors will create a 9400 µF capacitor, and this will really slow down the knocking repetition.
A little oil on the plunger may also help release it if it seems to stick in place randomly once pulled in by the electromagnet. When you get your solenoid working as described, bolt it into some type of enclosure so that the plunger 25 is going on, but by then you will have had your fun, and pretending that you heard nothing makes it even more funny. Figure 2-12 Solenoid installed Project 3—Ghost Door Knocker will be lifted about a quarter inch into the electromagnet, and then drop against the bottom of the enclosure.
