Where is the reading taken with a pin-type meter compared to a Wagner Meters Handheld Moisture Meter?

Pin-type meters take their measurements at the depth that you’ve been able to drive the pins – and only in a line between the non-insulated portions of the pins (often only the tips). In contrast, Wagner Meters handheld moisture meters generate a three-dimensional field that measures from the surface of the wood to a depth of 1/2″, 3/4″, or 1″ (depending on the model)—under the entire sensor.

The meter can be held in one place or slid rapidly along the entire length of the wood product, on both finished and unfinished wood, for a stable, accurate reading.
