I am excited to share my first DC fan. I got myself a 32V DC 12" Toilet Bowl oscillator :clap: :clap:. I have seen some toilet bowl oscillators before, but haven't had the opportunity to buy one yet. I found this one on an online site, and messaged the seller straight away. Talked, agreed upon a price, and then realized he was well over 100 miles away as I had selected in my search. I lucked out and he was willing to ship. About a week later it came in, but unfortunately the cage got tweeked from shipping. Steve Butler and I were able to get it back good enough to run it.  Happy to report it runs on ALL 3 speeds and oscillates! :clap: Looking forward to getting it cleaned up and in the house.  :D Attached is a video of it.

That is a beautiful fan, Ben! Aesthetically and mechanically, even though the back makes me think I need to use the restroom. :D
Should look outstanding with a little polish and TLC. :up:

My Dayton toilet bowl is an AC one with the older "toilet" that can't be turned on and off and it has a parallel ring cage.   Also I have two 12" stationary models with the drop ring cage, an AC and a 32 v. DC.  The DC is a very quiet running fan motor, much more so than the AC motor.

Ben brought it over to the house to see if it would run. It fired up instantly like it had been in service all the time. The cage needs a little tlc but I was impressed it survived a not too good packing job. Awesome fan.  👍👍👍

Believe it or not Dayton Fan & Motor Co. made a 64 VDC farm power plant fan as well. Your example runs real smooth.  :clap:

Thank you everyone for the comments. I knew there were a few different variations of the fan but didnt know there were that many.
