Under-cabinet fan

Does anyone use an under-cabinet or small wall mounted fan they’d recommend?

I cut shapes from MDF, then paint them with a small roller on a table in my workshop.

I have a shelf right above this table, that I’d love to mount a fan or two under to point at the table and help the paint dry a bit faster.


I love these guys, though they don’t fit your wall mounted criteria.

You could rig something up to hold them I’m sure. I use mine all the time to speed drying and lots of other things where you just need a quick fan, they’re surprisingly powerful. I like the battery powered feature, though you can use them plugged in via any usb power source too.


The little clip they show holding it to a shelf – if you point it straight down, 90 degrees, does that still hold it there well? The shelf is less than half as deep as the table, so that’d actually blow straight down on the drying paint.


So the one I recommended doesn’t have a clip, it’s just got a rectangular body.

It wouldn’t be hard to make a bracket to hold the body, you can flip it up at an angle and aim it just about anywhere.


I have some similar to that that come with the bendable silicone holders (I am blanking on what I want to call them - flexible tripod maybe?) that you can twist around many things, I wonder if that would be helpful at all? Just throwing that out there in case.

I have these, they use standard Lithium batteries of which I have several for different items, so I always have spares charged.


When I dry-age meat, I put one in the fridge.
