The resistance drill for detecting decay in wood
Timber structures include log cabins, bridges, wood culverts, play structures, totem poles and large timber framed buildings. Engineers, safety inspectors, and building restoration specialists require accurate data to know the internal condition of these structures. The Resistograph® excels at providing this information. Its ease of use, the speed of data collection, the ability to hold it with one hand in awkward locations, and the ability to read the data easily as it appears, makes the R650 series the machine of choice for discerning users.
