mini-Ligno DX Moisture Meter

Popular Moisture Meter for Wood, Bamboo, Drywall and Other Building Material

Mini-Ligno moisture meters are easy to use and sturdy. They give accurate and reliable measurements due to Lignomat’s advanced measuring technology. The unique LED display is unbreakable and includes a lifetime warranty. In addition, it is bright enough to read in poorly lit areas.

Designed for woodworkers, floor installers, inspectors or restoration specialists. If accuracy and versatility is important to you, then the mini-Ligno DX moisture meter will do both.

This popular moisture meter comes with 42 settings to correct for:
– domestic and tropical wood species
– horizontal, vertical and strand bamboo
– laminates and panel products
– gypsum and drywall (same as mini-Ligno S/D and S/DC)
– reference scale for concrete and other building materials.

The versatility of the pin meter is one of the  advantages over a pinless moisture meter. For example, pin moisture meters work for all thicknesses of wood from veneer to logs. In addition, any shape round or oval can be measured as long as both pins fit in the same piece.

The functionally designed mini-Ligno DX fits in your hand when measuring and is small enough to carry in a shirt-pocket. The green cap covers the pins during transportation and serves as a handle when pushing the pins into the wood. This unique design allows pushing behind the entire meter to insert the tapered pins easily. Longer pins are stored inside the meter for measuring thicker material. The short pins are ideal for surface or end cut readings and for veneer.

For measurements, push the pins into wood. The unique on-off switch between the pins, turns meter on automatically and bright LED lights instantly indicate moisture percentage.
