Prior to getting this meter, I had not appreciated how much the moisture content varies around the surface of a piece and within the piece. The only time I check the inside if when I have rough turned a green bowl.
With so much variation is it hard to determine the "average" moisture content of a piece. Hence I am not sure of the value of a more expensive meter which may be a tad more accurate - since the wood can be so varied.
