Showing your math, and/or explaining how you calculated your values, might be useful.

The transformers primary voltage will affect the secondary voltage, which means you could be starting off below what the transformer specifies. If the voltage is too low at the primary, there are a few things that might help. Decreasing the length of run to the transformer, or increasing the wire size to the transformer. Both should reduce the voltage drop across the run, and maximize the primary voltage.

What is the fan connected to? How is it fastened in place? Do you have access to it? How old is the fan?

@PhilipNgai The voltage between neutral and ground will be equal to the voltage drop across the wire.

The answer to your other question is a drill press, which is especially true if you plan on cutting plugs.
