    I also bought a Fowler 0-6 digital depth mic. Looks like modern vintage, so made in china I'm sure. Battery was dead, so I popped one in, and it seems like it resets if I hold the plastic body of the...

    That's what I'm hoping for. I took the battery out and stuck it in a fowler depth mic and it does not blink. Gotta buy batteries anyhow.

    I did say OBO, and my price is not unrealistic considering that Starrett still sells this obsolete piece for $3200.00 in 2016. IMO that makes him a troll for not PMing me with an offer, or minding...
