Good news Russ.   This fan, my only 220 volt one, runs slow on about 135 volts so she should do better on 220.  But I need DC current so will the usual bridge rectifier handle the 220 volts AC into the bridge?

Yes. The rectifier should be a tad overrated just so you can get a full nights sleep.  :D  The rectifier simply just changes the AC wave form.
