any advice on safety with current transformer(i am new to this whole electrical engineering)?
I have no idea where to start
and it will measure 110V/50HZ/Single phase, 2 wire(United States).

Oh, every time you talk about touching the mains, it sets off an immediate reaction in folk. You start getting replies that tell you how horribly dangerous it is and how you'll kill yourself and void your home warranty or insurance. While you may kill yourself, it probably won't be from messing with the current transformers and when I checked with the home insurance folk, they said that it was a problem only if it didn't meet code. Since there is no code on low voltage wiring where I live, no problem. It's roughly the same thing as putting in a new doorbell transformer, except much safer since you never actually have to touch any of the wires.And, the cardinal rule, if it scares you, turn off the breaker.

But telling someone not to do it because you won't is just silly
