Product Description

Product Description

Digital display makes accurate moisture readings easy to read and error-free. Simply press the pins into the wood and the meter automatically turns on. This rugged and compact meter is designed for any craft-type or industrial application to measure lumber, veneer or fiber boards. The mini-Ligno E/D received the woodworker-tested seal of approval in Handyman Magazine for being well-made, accurate and easy-to-use.

From the Manufacturer

The mini-Ligno S/D gives instant, accurate moisture readings between 6-45%, indicated by a bright digital read out. Designed for inspectors, architects, contractors, painters and homeowners. This meter is a useful tool to measure moisture content in wood and soft building materials such as drywall, plaster and gypsum. Features include a green cap that serves as a handle for easy probe insertion and covers the pins during transportation. Longer pins stored inside the meter for measuring thicker material. To obtain readings the pins are pushed into the wood and the unique on-off switch between the pins turns the meter on.

I bought this meter for two reasons: to test firewood before burning and to test wood for my furniture-building hobby. At one it excels and at the other it seems to be useless.
For testing wood destined for furniture or other fine woodworing, this little meter shines. It seems to be very accurate and is well-built and very sturdy. The two sets of pins allow accurate testing of most woods. The only (minor) downside here is the necessity of using the included cheat-sheet to adjust for different wood species, which is easy to do.
Forget about testing firewood, unless you happen to keep your wood indoors in a climate-controlled space. The first problem is the temperature correction. I don't know about anyone else, but most of my firewood is burned when it's really cold (below freezing) outside. This meter cannot compensate for such low temperatures. The second issue involves the tendency of wood stored outside to absorb moisture in the end-grain. I was able to overcome this by sawing random samples in half just before testing, but I still had to bring them inside and up to room temperature before testing. I burn 7-8 cords of wood each season in my whole-house wood stove, so this is just not practical, and I am not willing to store my firewood indoors.
(I have not yet had a need to try this meter on concrete, or other building materials, so my review does not cover that feature.)
Bottom line: This well-built meter is well worth the money (in fact it's a bargain!) for woodworking or similar uses. If anyone has advice for using it with firewood, I'd love to hear your suggestions!

Hello,
After my GE protimeter bit the dust rather unexpectly, I did some research and found this meter. At this point I have owned this for about six months, using it on multiple projects professionally. It has worked flawlessly and is solidly made.

This meter works just as advertised. It is easy to push the pins into the wood and change the pins to the longer ones which are included. The reading is bright and clear. Instructions are basic but complete. The construction is robust although I'm not tramping around the wilderness with this unit.
I had 2 cheap (one harbor freight - one other off ebay) and should of listened to the old adage - you get what you pay for. The hf unit is junk and the ebay unit stopped working after a few months. Now if mother nature would only speed up the wood I've got drying....

I have been using a friend's Delmhorst J-LITE 6% to 30% Pin LED Wood Moisture Meter for a while now, and basically love it. The case is kind of big to lug around, and it is frustrating that the percentage shows up for less than a second, because the only way I know to document a reading is to photograph the meter in action. It takes perfect timing and multiple tries to get a photo of the reading on the J-Lite.
I ordered the Mini-Ligno S/D because of the improved portability (it fits easily in a jacket pocket and the cap covers the probes and the switch), its ability to read the moisture in drywall/gypsum, and the slightly lower price.
The Mini-Ligno feels lighter and more cheaply made, but I will wait and see if there are any durability issues. I like that the percentage stays displayed for as long as you leave the meter in the wood, for easy photographing or demonstration in a meeting.
They both got the same readings in multiple tests.
The winner? Hard to say, but the Mini-Ligno is easier to carry, so I will use it more than I used the J-Lite.

Arrived with lcd display partially lit right out of the box displaying fragments before even taking cap off. Suspecting an end of life battery, opened it up and replaced battery that was installed. Hopefully battery almost dead from sitting in inventory too long and not a return. This solved the problem and now it works fine. Am using on drywall and it's perfect for that. Includes a nice case.

I purchased one moisture meter this spring for my commercial projects. It is used to test drywall and performs flawlessly. I purchased a second meter of the same brand/style because of how well they work.

I've had a few trees in my yard chopped down and thought of using them in some woodworking projects I've got coming up. This little reader is perfect for what I need it for.
