I have a couple of Variac transformers in my house (one of them is in my bedroom for use with my daily runner a Vortalex) and one is in my living room connected to my 1911 R & M Gearback. Sometimes I connect it to my 16 inch pancake. These are inexpensive (at least the ones from China) that you can get for short money and you can be sure they won't harm the motors. Personally, I wouldn't control a fan speed with a dimmer switch. Much better to use a Variac transformer.  Search the words variac transformer and quite a few will come up for sale. Some prefer to buy only American made and that's a personal preference.
