26-ES Slide Hammer Electrode
Easily check high density hardwood that short pins are unable to penetrate. The 496 contact pins that come with the 26-ES penetrate 1-1/8” and have insulated shanks so that only the tips are exposed. The pins make contact only at their uncoated tips and provide much more accurate readings of moisture content at various levels of penetration. This feature is useful for a variety of different applications.
