If the voltage at the clamps is below 12 volts, that means he is probably overloading his charger, and that will cause it to burn out eventually. The safest thing to do is to hook that fan to a battery, then use the charger to recharge the battery every time you use the fan.
Nice way of using a free item to get the job done , guessing if you do measure the voltage like Michiganmobileman said and it's below 12volts it would be like having the blower motor running through the resister on LOW or MED speed .Hooking a used battery and the charger like mentioned before might give you a higher speed if needed , Al

I went and got a bucket, traced and cut some holes. The fan goes into a big hole in the lid. The side hole is where everything gets blown out of and will go outside.
I put a hole in the bottom of the bucket, this will go to the exhaust vent in the side of the cabinet.
Tomorrow I will go and get some hoses.
I need to elongate the hole on the side, because the blower spins it does not blow the air straight out of the hole. Instead, it comes out at an angle, so if I put the hole on at an angle I will get more air flow.
