The Timber Check Moisture
Meter was the first high-end moisture meter made affordable to the average
Since 1990, tens of
thousands of professionals and hobbyist alike have benefited from the
accuracy, reliability and affordability of the Timber Check Moisture Meter.
Following are some
of the features that set our meter apart from the competition:
- What we consider
to be one of the most outstanding features is its unique body
design. The unit is compact, fitting easily and comfortably into
your hand. Its size and shape permit easy storage in a tool box
or pocket. The rugged body is 1/8" thick ABS plastic. The
circuit board is bolted in place, not glued. The battery compartment
is foam lined to limit internal movement. The label is printed
on the back side of clear Lexan plastic. Scuffs, scratches and
abrasions will not damage the printing so that the label will
remain looking like new. In short, our meter is built to take
the abuse of everyday use and accidental mishaps.
- The printed
circuit board is coated with a solder mask and a sprayed protective
coating to protect the circuit from moisture, oxidation, fungi,
and corrosion from acids and alkalis.
- The circuit
design results in excellent temperature compensation with less
that a 1% drift over a 100 °F change in temperature.
- Our meter
continually monitors its battery condition and will let the user
know when the battery should be replaced. The required supply
voltage is a mere 4V meaning that the Timber Check meter will
last substantially longer than other units before needing a new
- Each Timber
Check meter is individually calibrated using fixed components. No variable potentiometers are used, therefore
virtually eliminating the chance of calibration drift over time.
This also eliminates the possibility of the unit being jarred

are coated for corrosion resistance and are easily replaceable.
The meter comes with a set of spare pins and an attractive rubber
pin cover for safety.
- The Timber
Check meter is supplied with four pages of literature consisting
of operating instructions, a species adjustment
table for 88 species of wood, as well as a complete short
course on moisture in wood and its effects.
- The Timber
Check meter is manufactured completely by us in Canada. No parts
are preassembled elsewhere. Even the circuit boards are made in-house.
In this way we can ensure workmanship of the highest quality and
