Question Electric Football - Buzzz!!!

I am constructing my own Electric Football Gameboard. Most of you may be familiar with this game that has been popular since the 1960s. My problem is I don't know how to make the small metal or aluminum box that contains the switch-activated "vibration mechanism" that causes the field to vibrate. If anyone can give me instructions on how to (and what to buy) - to construct a small motor or similar device that buzzes or vibrates for the playing field (which is positioned underneath the gameboard)

I am not sure but I can say in my opinion I would look at Eba*.com and get an existing one cheap....then you can take the motor off that one in the building of your new one.

I just checked and they have some COMPLETE games going for 15-25 bucks and I would think the motor/vibrator is worth that and might be a solution for you.

On the BIG E site do a search for " electric football games " and you will be surprised what you find.
