4.0 out of 5 stars
worth the wait, 9 Jan 2013
What a good investment this was.
I was surprised at the compact size of the meter but the display is large, easy to use and has a nice pause button so you can get to logs down in the pile where the display wouldn't be visible.
If you know what wood you are testing you can set the meter or there is a general default setting if you're not sure.
Easy to fit in a pocket or handbag so if you're buying wood you can test it there & then.
There are only two small downsides, one was the delivery (though to be honest I think mine got caught in the Christmas post) - it should have arrived on 20th December but actually came on 3rd January.
The other downside is the cap covering the probes is rather fiddly to remove. I am reasonably dextrous & struggled to remove it. I suspect that after much use it will become easier to remove but also easier to lose & then I would worry about the probes getting damaged. A cap that stayed connected to the meter (like a lens cap on a camera) would have been a better design.
However, this is a rather nit-picking fault so I would recommend it - hence the 4 stars!
