Ten years previously, constructed two devices that used the circular magnetic force around a wire to create a continuous circular motion. Now Faraday succeeded in building a laborious construction - probably taking ten full working days to put together - consisting of two insulated coils of wire wound on opposite sides of a soft iron ring.
