straw + 300m of 32 SWG copper wire + iron nail + lots of patience = solenoid
I used to make these as a kid, mini rail guns to fire nails :)
You can rig up a slow spinning drill to help you wind them quicker.
Watch they don't get too hot and melt the drinking straw. Resistance
should be about 100 ohms. A good trick is to charge a 10,000 uF capacitor
so you can get a hefty pulse of current.
Otherwise... pinball machines, doorbells (the ding - dong type)
If you don't mind high voltage types (I advise 12v types to be safe)
then scrap dishwashers and washing machines can be mined for them.
