    Here i have a motor which i pulled from an old alarm bell i presume,

    But my trouble is that the shaft simply moves in and out rather than rotating clockwise or anti clockwise,

    Is there a way i can can convert it so that it works just like a standard motor, rotating in a circular motion? 1474190628162-1102267278.jpg 147419066743738279258.jpg 147419066743738279258.jpg

    How come you did not realize that it is a solenoid o_O
    A solenoid moves in or out

    That appears to be a solenoid. It is designed to be pulled in and out by the windings. It cannot be converted to turn the shaft. But you can convert in/out motion to rotary motion by a crankshaft.

    That would be a rather complicated way to get a rotating motor.
