    I got this cheapo on Amazon, reviews around the internet said it's pretty decent as long as you are okay with a 2-3% margin of error. Testing over a few weeks the measurements matched what I'd expect based on the conditions in my shop. Whatever you end up getting make sure to read the manual!

    I second the Lignomat recommendation; bought one last year.  Simple to use, very robust, and located right in Portland.

    I purchased a Lignomat meter a few years back when they presented at one of the monthly meetings. Very happy with the product and they're local which is a big plus as well.

    Hi there,

    I bought some lumber at a local yard last week and it felt very wet to me. It’s now sitting in my shop acclimating and it strikes me I should test the moisture content before milling. 

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a specific brand or model of moisture meter?

    Thanks in advance!
