Signet is still in business, the displays are available for these meters. I am in the same situation and will be ordering a replacement. 5 years ago they were about $60USD.

Hunt around this site and you'll find contact info.

I'm pretty sure I have an old one in working order in storage. I'll check and get the model number this pm after work. If I do, you can have it.

Signet electronics?

Does anyone have old working depth meter or windpoint/speed instruments? We are thinking of upgrading, but would like to get another season or so out of the old ones. Hoping someone has a few old ones lying around their storage lockers? John T.

Hello,

I just read your post about the signet mk172 display that you think that you have stored away somewhere? I'm looking for one if you still have it. I'm in the Bahamas right now and I would be extremely excited if you still have it and would be willing to part with it cheaply? I've got a friend coming over in about a week and if I could get you to send it to him he could bring it with him. I would pay the shipping and the price of the part. If you can email me back as soon as possible to let me know if you still have it and would be willing to send it out quickly I would be extremely appreciative!!!

Hopefully talk to you soon,

Slooptattoo hasn't been active here since last April, but you might still get lucky if you send him a PM when you get enough posts.

Re: signet depth gauge..

My old signet debth guage quit. Was working fine...came into port...shut down...started up a week later and it is dead. It is getting power. Panic has set in. It is twenty five years old and so reliable. Any easy things I could check?

Toss it and replace with a fishfinder.
