Rick,
Do you have the power plant to go with it?
Back in the day the farmers had a Kohler power plant to run the fan and cream separators.

I went to an auction last year that had around a hundred power plants. All belonged to one guy. Totally insane amount of stuff.

Charlie I wish I did, they fellow I bought it from years ago said it was the fastest fan he had ever seen, apparently he didn’t have one either.  Steve it had to take that guy a lifetime to collect all those power plants, wow!

The light plants do show up  now and then .
There is a tractor and farm equipment  junk yard down south of Mishawaka and that  he picks them up at auction sales.
I do have  a couple 32 to 110 volt inverters.

I hope we didn't get to far off subject and cost you a sale Rick.
How do you run the 32 volt fan?

Use a variac to get the 32 volts and a bridge rectifier to get DC.   Once you have a variac it's easy and cheap.   I can run any AC or DC fan and have an old power strip where I wired in a bridge rectifier to the last socket and marked that socket for DC output.  Even little 6 volt Edisons run great.

Amen, I have several and use them.   I prefer the older ones from pre c.1980s or 70s and like the Powerstats best as the one on the left in the picture here.

Hi All!

You use a variac to test your fans in the shop... A variac while it can be used to run a fan very well is mostly used as a test intrument... 
I have 8 - 32v DC fans in my house that I run and I do not want to drag a variac from room to room or buy 8 expensive variacs to run my 32v DC fans!
What I do is go on Ebay and find 110v ac to 32v DC power supplies made by HP to power up their printers... They are usually less than $10 delivered to your home! Also check out your local Good Will stores, Salvation Army and other such places... They normally have boxes of orphaned power supplies for a couple of bucks... The power supply to need should be rated at 110v ac to 32v DC at a minimum 2000 miliamps or higher... They will run a DC fan all day long and are very convenient to use... I picked this one up Monday at a Good Will and put a plug on the end and it runs my Delco Light fan all day... The key is the HP converter should be over 2000 miliamps or 2 amps...

Hi Rick!

I just thought a cheap power supply sources might help your sale! Members sometimes shy away from 32v stuff because they are not aware there are power supplies that are reliable at a reasonable price...

Thanks George for the information, I have one of the power supplies I got after you posted it I believe a few years ago, I will include it with the fan and reduce the price to $125.00 for the fan and power supply.  Thanks for the plug 😊

$25.00 Fee for crossing the Michigan line!
You may buy more than  one Item  for the $25.00 fee !!
  We waived the  Cass  and Kalamazoo County fee's just for the veep.!!!   LOL
With all those 32 volt fans  you should  have a 32v light plant to go with them.

I just bought one of these paperbacks. I cut the male output plug off. Inside there is a central insulated core wire surrounded by very fine stranded wire. Do I simply separate these two and connect them to the terminals on a female plug? Any polarity concerns?

The worst it would do is run backwards ,
 If that happens  just reverse the wires.
Use a 3 prong plug and socket so the polarity stays correctly  connected.
