    I went on Falstad and threw together a simulation for you to experiment with:
    http://www.falstad.com/circuit/#$+1...+144+240+144+0 o+5+64+0+35+1.25+0.00625+0+-1

    The values I used aren't the same as what elec_mech supplied; as this is just a simulation so that you can see something work and experiment with the values.

    Just in case the schematic gets lost, here's the export/import file:

    The transistor won't change, but if your power supply is only 3v, you won't be able to use a BJT 555 timer, nor a relay.

    Generically, the circuit uses an NPN transistor to control the relay coil current.
    More specifically, a general purpose 2N2222 transistor should work fine.

    The diode can be a 1N4148/1N914 or a Schottky diode.

    But you still have not told us if you are using a 3v supply for the entire project or not.

    What voltages are you using for the project?
    Are you using batteries? If so, what kind?

    What is the current required by your motor at 3v with no load?

    Well, perhaps you can use a resistor in series with the motor to limit the current. Otherwise, you'll likely burn it up pretty quickly. Without knowing what the required current is, it'll be kind of difficult to calculate the resistor. Perhaps once you have the motor on hand, you can figure it out by powering it from a couple of AA batteries in series.

    SgtWookie - I can't say I've done much with motors, but is a 1N914 or 1N4148 going to work better (faster response) or the same as a 1N400X diode? I suggested the 1N4001 because it can handle more current and it is what I have seen on the few motors I've taken apart from other items.

    tsukaranz -
    I don't think you want to apply 5V to a 3V motor. A quick look at RadioShack as a simple guideline shows motors available that run from 1.5 to 3V, then they jump to 6V. This suggests your motor is designed to operate from 1.5-3VDC. Jameco shows some that run from 1-6VDC, but also shows some with a max of 4.5VDC. Running at 5VDC could have it screaming (running too fast) and may result in damage.

    If you're going to use relays to control the motor, I'd suggest using 3VDC for the motor and relay output and 5VDC for everything else. You can use a LM317 adjustable voltage regulator with some resistors to drop your 5VDC down to 3VDC.

    Can you supply 3VDC to the motor now and measure the current draw with a current meter?

    well, i'm not sure if i can get those things at radioshack coz i'm a bit far... i'm from phils.

    by the way elec_mech, thanks for the info...

    I suggested the 1N914/1N4148 for the relay coil diode; as they have very short ON and reverse recovery times. The 1N400x series does not have on and off times specified; if a particular manufacturer's diodes are slow, that could lead to the destruction of the transistor.

    Schottky diodes, such as 1N5817 through 1N5819 could be used; they switch on pretty quickly and have very low reverse recovery times - far faster than standard silicon diodes.

    SgtWookie,

    Ah-ha! Sorry, I keep forgetting the transistors are driving the relay coils, not the motor directly. Thank you for the information, I'm sure I'll put that to use in the future.

    tsukaranz,

    I didn't mean you needed to go to RadioShack, I was just using their website as a reference for information since they sell hobby motors similar to the one in your picture.

    Good luck in your circuit.

    here's my circuit..
    there's one thing i don't understand... why is it that in the square wave, there is small wave after every three waves?? how is it so??

    hey, buddies... if i want to put another IC which is the LM741, how can i use it??

    i was thinking of changing the var resistor into an LDR, and put a sound detector circuit in it that uses LM741, but do i suppose to do it??
