q: Hi we are wanting a meter to measure moisture content on macadamia nuts The distance between probes are important and do all probes have to touch the medium to get an accurate reading What is the lowest reading does this meter go to?
a: This would probably not be suitable as all probes need to touch. The lowest reading is 0%.

because of the wet summer we had the wood i bought was dry on the outside but still wet inside. it appeared dry but wouldn't burn. on chopping a few pieces up i discovered that it was wet beneath the surface. now when i order wood i just tell the supplier that i have a moisture gauge and if its not properly dry i will reject it. the gauge is easy to use and gives an instant reading and a good tool to have.

Just used it a few times, but it's very easy and very straight forward. Ideal if you want to measure the water content of your firewood, or, like me, measure the water content before processing it for a woodturning project.

Accurate wood moisture gauge

Works really well - seems to detect moisture accurately in both soft and hard wood types. Wood under the 25% level burns as expected, so it does what it says on the box.
