What do i need to run this motor? Answered

I want to run this motor on this link https://www.surpluscenter.com/item.asp?item=5-1257&catname=electric at 24volts.

I want my power to come from a 120volt ac outlet.  

Can someone please tell me how I would do that?

I need to know what i need to buy for it to work.

Use a plug in transfourmer. Your local eletoronics store will have one. They already have a AC to DC converter in them. You may have seen them on things like cellphone chardgers or laptop supplys. They also have a built in transfourmer so all you need to do is buy one with the right output.
