electric razors as pottery tools??

As a man who's always prefered an electric razor (got a dueling scar trying
my father's blade when I was 5) I've often wondered if there isn't some
pottery use old electric razors could be put to.

Could one of these things be bolted onto a sieve and used as a vibrator?
How about for making "scratchy" patterns on clay? Raw glaze or slip
removal? Could one of the rotory Philips (Norelco over there?) and a couple
of rubber bands be used to power a banding wheel?

Any ideas?

while shaving.)
