When I bought my meter I read the following:
From the Manufacturer
So I naturally took it to mean that I could use it to test the moisture content of my wood. It sure seemed to do that on kiln dried lumber purchased at known moisture contents.
Today I asked that company which wood group I might use to measure olivewood. I received the following answer.
“The MO280 does not measure % wood moisture.
You measure a material of known moisture content and then you “compare” it to a unknown item of the SAME density.
Did I mis-understand what my meter is supposed to do?
