Re-utilize old electric shaver.

A fast project that turns old Philips into a new handheld fan.

It’s summer, it’s hot, and although the AC is working, it’s never too much to get one more cooling device.

The Philips AquaTouch doing a good job by giving you that, it has a 680mAh rechargeable battery which gives you enough time for cooling through the day when the temperatures get too high or you just need a cool breeze.

It’s worth saying that this project does not modify the shaver itself, but just adding an adapter, so you can put back the razors again, and use it as was.


Although this is only an adapter, and you can reassemble the electric shave, you should know that the warranty will be invalid after the disassembly, and if the parts are not detached correctly they can break.

  • ball bearing 608
  • 2x 2mm screws
  • Philips AquaTouch s5000 series

First things first, in order to stick the fan itself to the shaver we need an adapter, so I took photos of the AquaTouch, and make some sketches in Fusion 360. Here is a short tutorial on how to use canvas to create sketches - https://youtu.be/HVEaYfdsgXc

The 3d file for the fan I get from grabcad.com

So with this design, you can attach different blades, the only thing that is needed to change is the adapter_p2.stl file, so the part can fit the blades itself, or they can be print as one piece.

The assembly process is fairly easy.

Every one of the pieces needs to be fitted inside the next one as shown in the first image.

The fit tolerance is pretty much depending on the 3d printing settings, and here are my settings:

  • Nozzle diameter: 0.4 mm
  • Layer High: 0.2
  • Infill: 20%
  • Material: PLA
  • The print time was about an hour.


It’s very lightweight and blows relatively strong. Most of the noise that is generated is coming from the ball bearing, so it could be quiet. I have not tried to run the fan for more than 5 min., to prevent overheating.
