Product Overview

  • Measures moisture in 48 types of wood/lumber
  • Built-in joystick for quick, easy selection
  • OLED dot matrix display with multiple display options
The Precision Multi-Species Wood Moisture Meter from General Tools is ideal for measuring the moisture content of 48 specific types of wood or lumber while also compensating for temperature. The built-in joystick makes species selection fast and easy. Being able to measure the moisture content is an important part of woodworking, because if joined boards do not have the same moisture content, the result could be sub-par. With the precise measurements and memory capabilities of this moisture meter, you can measure up to 99 samples of wood with manual or time-based recording.
  • Super bright and sharp OLED (organic light-emitting diode) dot matrix display
  • Incorporates 48 industry-standard moisture-resistance curves
  • Also measures and displays ambient temperature and RH (relative humidity)
  • Measurements can be compensated for ambient temperature, improving precision
  • Multiple display options, including analog bar graph
  • Measurement hold button
  • Audible moisture alarm
  • Pin cover can also be used as calibration checker
  • Replaceable pins
  • Auto power off function (can be disabled) with adjustable time-out trigger
  • Separate remaining battery charge and low battery indications

Customer Reviews

Precision Multi-Species Wood Moisture Meter is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Moisture meter, general Was broken,, did not work. Called customer service, General. What a joke, after several attempts and 40 minutes on hold was told it was broken. Than there was a bunch of you need to send us this and that to get permission to send back. Took to store they gave me a refund. Told it was a good price, so what.ll Did not have the option to get another one. Needed a meter just a waste of several weeks . Took way longer to get than expected. Totally bad ALL around. NO way I would recommend, bad deal ALL around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A confidence builder This moisture meter makes accurate measurements of moisture in most types of wood. It comes in a plastic protective case. I'm using it to measure the moisture content of hardwood for woodworking and of firewood. In comparison with less expensive meters, this meter reports ambient temperature and humidity, compensates for the density of different types of wood, compensates for temperature, and stores up to 100 measurements. It has a yellow OLED display that is readable from all angles. The display has no brightness control and is barely readable in full sunlight. It is easy to read when shaded as it is under all other lighting conditions. The cap contains a resistor that is used to check the meter calibration. If the meter reads between 12.9% and 18.9% it is correctly calibrated. Using an akaline battery, continuous battery life is about 3 hours. The meter has an auto-off feature that can be set from 1 to 99 minutes. When used intermittently battery life should be much longer. The battery compartment spring loaded and requires a firm press to close the lid. The battery connector seems flimsy so I'm careful not to damage it when changing the battery. The compensation temperature is set to 70 degrees by default, and can be manually changed in 5 degree increments. I would have liked to have seen a feature that automatically sets the compensation temperature to the ambient temperature for use outdoors. The meter pins are replaceable but no spare pins are supplied. The manual is well written.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good The display is really bright (OLED). It has settings for many species of wood. The measurements seem to be accurate, and the case is definitely a nice one.
