To sum up

Do you think that my article above is exciting and useful? I have shown you the best knowledge about some types of pliers. But we should keep in mind that three types of pliers above are not enough. We have so many kinds of useful pliers on the market for you to choose from. I wish you could get this information and success with your jobs.

One of the decisive factors for the quality of wood in making furniture is moisture. Why is moisture so important? Because wood is a material with about 90 percent water. therefore it is easy to get mold or damage if not stored in a place with suitable moisture.

Understanding that important, manufacturers have quickly created many types of the best moisture meter for the wood so that users can control the moisture content of the wood and take measures to preserve it properly.

Moisture Meter

On the market today two types of wood moisture meters are most commonly used, which are a pin – type moisture meter and a pinless-type moisture meter. These two machines all have their strengths and weaknesses (in the opinion of most users). If a pin type moisture meter can help users measure the humidity accurately by inserting it deep into the wood. Then the pinless type moisture meter allows users to easily measure moisture on a large wooden plane.

After seeing the plus and minus points of these two devices. Many people wonder why we can’t use a tool that combines all the strengths of these two devices. Therefore, the all-in-one wood moisture meter was born. It quickly satisfied most customers who want to measure wood moisture.

 In this article, I will show the outstanding benefits of this device for those who do not know about it and can consider and choose.

First benefit: Increase the speed and accuracy when measuring

When you use an all-in-one moisture meter, you can apply the function of a pinless meter to measure the moisture content of large wooden floors or wooden planes. That helps you to locate the wood surface where to have inappropriate moisture. Next, you use the mode of the pin-type moisture meter, plug the measuring feet deep into the position you marked. That helps you measure more precisely the moisture and can take measures to preserve and deal with that problem.

Second benefit: save space where you leave the device

A carpenter, a professional contractor works in large carpentry workshops, who are equipped with many tools from hand saws, wood chisels, … to be utilized anywhere if necessary. 

Imagining that, if you had to carry all three types of hygrometer with battery, pinless and temperature in your tool bag, It was terrible and exhausting, wasn’t it? Your bag has a lot of things and it is now heavier than. Moreover, if you require to use them, it will be difficult to find. 

The all-in-one moisture meter comes with outstanding advantages such as compact, durable, convenient, does not occupy much space in your tool bag. You can leave it in a small compartment in your pocket and take it anywhere if you want to measure moisture immediately.

Besides, instead of having to care for and store three separate devices, you only need to maintain one device, which will make the process of storing your tools easier.

Third benefit: Many leading utilities

There are several projects where the pinless type moisture meter outperforms the battery meter, and there are jobs that battery meters are much more useful than pinless meters.

 For example, when monitoring the moisture in large, flat pieces of wood such as wooden planks for flooring, a pinless moisture meter is the ideal device to quickly scan these flat objects. However, the major weakness of a non-battery moisture meter is that the surface of the material must be smooth to operate and measure. Therefore, in wooden scratches, holes or wooden art decorations, this device cannot be used. 

With this all-in-one device, you don’t need to worry about that. All you need to make is switch the machine mode from the pinless function to the battery duty and you can read all the wood which has different shapes easily.

Especially, after finishing a product, you want to check its moisture again, but the function measured by type with the battery will leave traces on your product. You just need to switch the mode to pinless type and measured as normal.

By using an all-in-one moisture meter, you are available for many larger tasks than pin – type or pinless – type moisture meter.

In conclusion

I have presented some excellent benefits for this all-in-one machine. You see that the device is amazing right? Let’s research and buy one for yourself and your family immediately.

In most of the articles, I wrote before. I always mention the technical problems of a table saw. But I find the problem I am going to say right away is also extremely essential and necessary. It can also become a leading factor when you choose to select the table. That is about safety. Many people only consider the functions of the machine as it is modern or easy to use? They forget how good the device is but the safety of users is not guaranteed, it will no extended be valid.

Accordingly, in this article, I only focus on the safety of parts of the table saw. Let’s read and find out.

Function to guard against saw blades

In my opinion, I find this function extremely necessary and important to choose all types of table saws from the best portable saws to the best stationary table saws. It is made of plastic or metal material, shaped like a saw blade and wrapped outside the saw blade. This function helps users to use the saw safely and blame dangerous cases that may occur such as saw blades cutting into fingers.

Even so, there are many people using table saws who don’t see this blade protection function. By following them, it makes the woodcut when finished with traces left. Moreover, when they want to change their tongue, they take a lot of time. Therefore, many carpenters do not equip this function for table saws.

Receiving many negative comments, Producers are trying to reduce the disadvantages that the blade protection function causes make for you to be able to use it most conveniently and safely.

Splitters and Anti-kickback pawls

One of the leading causes of danger for people using saws is due to kicking back. Occurs when the wood panel is cut at a speed too fast, it is reflected the user. That is very dangerous. Why does it happen? Because the contact between the saw and the fence does not guarantee that the teeth on the back of the saw exert a great force on the wood. Consequently, to overcome this, manufacturers have created a splitter that is shaped like a small straight saw formed of metal or plastic standing behind a circular saw. It has quickly become a solution to solve this problem.

Accompanied by splitters are two legs to anti-kickbacks is placed on either side of the wood plate during work to avoid the loose out of the wood. They work quite effectively. But when you want to cut a horizontal board, this part is not necessary that will interfere with your cutting process

Riving knife

Just like the function of splitter but improved much better. For example, a riving knife can move with the blade and also protect the user by not being able to touch the back of the blade.

Sensor mechanism

According to research by many experts, the rate of injury when using table saws is increasing every day. 9 minutes will occur in one case. Some people are lightly scratched and some are amputated, … extremely dangerous. 

How to prevent? To solve this problem, manufacturers have created a sensor. It is extremely modern and sophisticated. It has a very good human skin sensor. When it feels human skin needs a saw blade. The machine will automatically turn off immediately. The whole action is within 0.02 seconds. You will only scratch or bleed a little instead of losing your whole hand.

Magnetic switch

The magnetic switch is another great invention in terms of human and machine protection. It will automatically turn off the breaker when your working process is too long to heat the machine, which is the reason for the explosion. When the device is turned off to warn you to give the device a break, then use it again.

Sticks to push wood

Sticks to push wood are increasingly popular today as more and more accidents can happen at any time. It helps workers do not need to touch their hands directly but can also push the wood through the blade easily. You can buy it at any store, or you can do it yourself. However, you should choose a stick with a hard material that is not easy to break during use.

In conclusion

Safety is an especially significant factor when working with table saws. I hope that through this article you can choose the table saw which has many modern features and has many features to protect users.

Nothing cheers up a winter evening like a big plate full of roasted vegetables. And it’s the perfect way to use seasonal produce from your local farmer’s market or CSA share. This roasted vegetable recipe makes me happy and thankful for the crisp air and cooler temperatures of winter in the South!

Abundance Roasted Veggies


3 small beets (I used Chioggia and Golden beets because they’re so pretty)

3 tablespoons of olive oil, divided

4 carrots

2 cups of Brussels sprouts

3 small sweet potatoes

1 sweet onion

2 cloves of garlic

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves


method: Preheat the oven to 375°. Wash all your vegetables so they’re clean and pretty. Peel the beets with a vegetable peeler and chop them up into 1/2-inch-thick pieces.

Put the chopped beets into a large mixing bowl with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and toss until they’re coated. Spread them evenly on a baking sheet and put them in the oven for 20 minutes.

While the beets are roasting, chop your carrots in half lengthwise and then into thirds. Trim your Brussels sprouts and cut in half. Chop your onion into bite-sized pieces. Cut your sweet potatoes into 1/2 pieces. And then mince your garlic.

Toss all your chopped vegetables into the mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle in your salt, pepper, minced garlic, and thyme leaves. Toss together until combined and coated.

Spread evenly on the baking sheet along with your beets, put back into the oven for 15 minutes, then stir the veggies to prevent burning. Pop back in the oven for another 15 minutes-20 minutes, or until veggies are softened and nicely roasted.


I like to serve big plates of these wonderful veggies with sides of mixed greens salad for a tasty meal.
