You will need a 1S Meter this is rated for 120v then 4 Jaw meter socket the 2 top jaws are line side the bottom 2 are load side at 100a these style of meters were used on older homes that did need 240 volts..

Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.

Electric meter

all of the older 240 analog meters will work on 120 there accuracy will be off about a 1/2 kw i belive. also some of the digtals will work on 120, i know the CENTRON will. i hooked to my portable oil heater this past winter, with an old 1934 westinghouse CS meter. both were accurate. if ya want one with out a meter base the "A" base work well, they kinda have there own built in socket.
