Hello everyone..

I am a hobby woodworker and thinkin of goin bigger since i am planning a retirement,i have been an International Ironworker since 1978 but still love to work with wood.

I'll be somewhat incorporatind steel and wood together on projects since i also have a ll the steel fabrication tools and skills.

I was in search of a moisture meter at a reasonable price to start with,since in the area i live i have access to alot of timber wood(southeast Georgia) left over from logging sites.

I also have a lot hard wood from timber being used as dunage on trucks to haul steel to jobsites.

i found and bought a slightly(supposedly) used Lignomat Mini-Scanner LC model on eBay last night and won it for 30.00 shipped to my door.
With a little research it seems that Lignomat is actualy a good brand..

My problem is..i did a search for the "LC" model and found NOTHING on it.

The seller said it will include the original instructions and such,so not worried on how to use it..

I was wondering if anyone has ever heard or used this "LC model"

I'll post the pictures of it to see it is actualy a "LC" model.

I wrote an email to Lignomat and got this reply....

The model was discontinued more than 12 years ago.
It is a wood moisture meter.
the best way for you to use it,measure a dry piece of wood to obtain a base value
for a dry piece of wood

and then compare readings to that base value.

Each species of wood maybe different.

If you need more instructions,
describe to us what the application is.
