The Delmhorst J-4 is an analog pin-type meter that can be used for measuring moisture in wood and other building materials. This no-frills, basic meter performed well in our accuracy tests, except that it does not maintain its accuracy when surface moisture is present.
Delmhorst Moisture Meters
The Delmhorst BD-2100 is a digital pin-type meter that uses resistance technology for measuring moisture. Our tests indicated that this meter provides readings that are somewhat low compared to the actual moisture content of wood.
The Delmhorst BD-2100 comes with a slide hammer that uses resistance technology for measuring moisture content (MC) at various depths in wood and other building materials.
CRITICAL FLAW ALERT!
This meter exhibits a critical flaw—namely its very low score for accuracy. We deducted one star from our overall rating to reflect this critical flaw.
