Hi everybody. I don’t know if somebody mentioned here already, I just wanna let everybody know that the Moisture Meter made by General which is normally $29.00 is on sale right now at Lowes for $9.98. It’s also on sale on their website >> I pick one up 2 days ago and it looks ok to me. I don’t know until when it will be on sale. Also a battery operated precision screw driver is on sale for less than $6.00. I accidentally saw it because it was hanging besides the moisture meter. Normal price was around $17.00. Enjoy and goodluck. What are you guys waiting for, RUN to your nearest Lowes :-)

I saw this ad, too, but can’t offer any input on General’s Moisture Meter because I have never used it.

However, if it is in the same class as their POS Pro-Doweling Kit- sold at Lowe’s- my opinion is that you’re wasting your money.
