Avoid wet wood disasters, use a wood moisture meter!

One of the challenges of working with wood is its ability to absorb and release moisture and in so doing it expands and contracts and is called "wood movement", small amounts of which are acceptable but larger volumes of secreted moisture can cause many mechanical and wood-finish problems in lumber that can be avoided by selecting dry woods that can be measured with Moisture Meters, such as the Wagner Orion Series. Using a moisture analyzer is also a great way to tell when your green wood is ready to use.

Orion 950 Review

Orion pinless wood moisture meters from Wagner Meters feature incredible new versatility built upon the traditional superior accuracy that Wagner technology is known for. First, never be in doubt that your Orion meter is calibrated to superior factory accuracy with the “On-Demand Calibrator”, a device that allows you to calibrate your Orion meter right where you are in less then 30 seconds. You won’t find that capability with any other pinless wood moisture meter. Add dual depth measurement, equilibrium moisture content (EMC) calculation, ambient temperature and relative humidity sensor, and Bluetooth connectivity to free apps on your smart device and you’ve got a line of pinless moisture meters so versatile they need a Swiss Army logo.

Pencil Tool Rail Sled - Production System

No pins! So it's non-destructive method of testing. You can take this to a lumber yard and not get any frowns from the employees because you're putting a bunch of pin-holes in their lumber.

Easy to Use

Easy to use, like the dual depth setting. I had a slow dishwasher leak in the kitchen and had to tear up a large section of the maple flooring. I bought this meter to be certain I had everything dried out and that the moisture content of the underlayment and new flooring had sufficiently balanced before I began installation of the new floor. I had a question on using the meter in Relative mode and also over USB, so I emailed support at Wagner meters. I also mentioned the manual was a little lacking in the Relative mode section. The very next day I received an in-depth reply. They even noted my comment on the section that was lacking in the manual. Here was Tony's response: "You are quite right about the explanation on how to use the Relative mode. I appreciate your bringing this to my attention. I have made a recommendation to amend the manual." Needless to say, I was very pleased with both the product and the support.

Very User-Friendly

Be more comfortable in your next major investment in wood products. Very user-friendly right out of the box. Orion review was excellent, helped me choose the unit that fit my requirements.

One of the best

Not for the faint hearted given the price, but no buyers remorse if genuinely needed. You reach a point in your working life when you need to invest in a quality product. Wagner and Lignomat are the leaders for moisture meters for timbers. Not cheap. One of the best. Where you need to ensure the moisture of your wood product is consistent, it is important
