This meter is designed for domestic and exotic woods. The Extended Range Specify Gravity (SG) allows for settings of .20 - 1.0 to accommodate exotic woods. One of the features of this moisture meter that makes it great for measuring MC in "hard-to-get-to" places is the Press and Hold feature. This allows the user to take a reading in a place they cannot see, such as behind a toilet, refrigerator, etc. When using the hold feature, the user can remove the meter from the item being measured and it will display the MC measured. The two control buttons make it easier to adjust the SG's on the moisture meter.
