Caden Barrera asked "Hey granddad can you make a magnetic levitation device with magnets and thread?". I had to use beading wire instead of thread because my thread was too weak and stretchy.

It is probably worth reading my video description first because the answer may already be there.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
