Moisture Test Meter - Simple but Solid

November 16, 2010
By MassWoodsman

" I ordered this test meter for checking firewood as it dries and for checking hardwood lumber to see when it's ready to use. So far it has come in very handy. It gives consistent, accurate readings within the range. The only downside is the range only goes from 10-30% so if you're outside of that range, you're on your own. It tells me what I need to know and for the price, it's a great buy. If you need specific readings over a wide range you might be better off with a pricier model. For me, it's been a great purchase and takes the guesswork out of wood drying. "

Affordable moisture meter

March 16, 2009

" This meter has worked great to give me a general idea of how dry my hardwood lumber is. I have several piles in several locations and this allows me to get an idea of which is drier. The meter is fairly accurate its only downfall would be that it may not be as accurate to a lower reading as much as a pricier unit. For the price though its usefulness can not be beat. "
