    I was wondering who all uses one and if it is all you need for both humidity and temp.?

    I've never used one, but the Virginia Tech Extension Office has a good document here about how to do a wet bulb thermometer:

    As a Hokie, I always recommend the Extension Office's publications. They're clearly written and easy to understand as they do a lot of outreach with 4-H and such.
