    I know very little about these, hence needing to ask -


    The type of non-probe moisture meter - they work on density (or something?), right?

    And you have to tell them the wood type, so they can calibrate their results?


    For whatever reason, i rarely know the species of what i have. Does that mean these meters will be no good for me?

    Protimeter damp meter, they work quite simply on the amount of moisture conducting a current between the two prongs and are not as sophisticated as you are trying to make them sound. Just keep the wood for a decent length of time to season it then try it by weight.

    As per the title, I'm not talking about measuring conductivity.
