<< 220 VAC is rather straightforward.  There are two "hot" wires. 
 Just put your meter across your leads, and you should see
 220VAC.  You also will have a ground (usually a green), and if
 you  meter it, you will see 120VAC from the hot wires to the
 ground. >>

This is  what I thought -  answers were unanimous - I just wanted 
some confirmation since the manual was no help ("...wiring...should
be done by a licensed electrician") BTW the leads read 240v.
Thanks to everyone who responded.
What I should have asked was " whats the best way to cut a 4 1/4 "
hole in a concrete block wall for the blast cabinet vaccum exhaust"
- the hole I have now is pretty ugly. oh well.
