Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Moisture meter It measures humidity of your material. The cost is OK. It is good for first inspection. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moisture Meter Easy to hold. Easy to use. This meter works as expected. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great for the money This works as expected. I am using it to measure the moisture in lumber and seem to work great. The pins seem slightly thin and easy to bend, however so long as you are careful it will work for you May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised Product was delivered quickly. Product seemed to be of high quality. I used it for checking the humidity of my new bamboo flooring and my bedroom flooring. It was very simple to use. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool to have on hand I purchased an outdoor water boiler last Jan and this winter is the first to really get to use it. So I cut down a lot of trees during the summer and fall. Manuf recommendation says to use wood with less than 25% moisture content. Well, I was pretty much winging it, going by "feel" The person I bought the boiler from showed me one and thought it was great, so I went looking for one and came across this one. it has been quite handy. I can burn some wood now that I thought was too wet, which has saved me from needing to by wood to restock the supply. Don't know how well the less expensive ones work, nor the more expensive ones, but this one has been great for me. No problems at all so far. A previous comment said that the cap was easy to lose, so when I remove the cap, I just put it in my pants pocket.. So far I have had it for about 2 weeks and I am extremely pleased with this device.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moisture meter Great product and simple to use for the novice. Helped me with a couple of trees that I had turned into lumber. October 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool in tool bag Really handy for detecting leaks. Accurate and easy to use August 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simple but functional Last year we felled our mulberry tree. I kept the thicker parts for later use because mulberry wood has a nice yellowish color. To see if the wood was dry enough to use I needed a moisture meter. I checked various models and based on the reviews and price, Out of the box I used it on all sorts of wood, just for testing. I have no way to check the accuracy of the readings but I think the scale is quite right. It went from 8% for my workbench to 45% for wood I brought in from outside. All in all I'm satisfied with the performance. The only negative aspect is the two pinholes from the needles but that I knew already before I bought it. So I use a spot that has to be worked on.
