Not just the 3D Printer (yay!) but also ... a headphone refurbish kit.
Replacement foam head band, over-ear foam pads and inner foam, new plug-in Sennheiser cables.

5 minutes and boom! Like new again.

I bought these (Sennheiser HD580 Precision) back in the early 90's, and they weren't cheap then. So I was thinking of replacing them, but ... it's difficult, they were damn good headphones, and the modern equivalent is the 660S at around £400 a set. I find it kinda difficult to justify spending that much on headphones fer gawds sake! But the head band foam was less than 1mm thick, the ear foam covering had frayed badly, the inner foam was missing - presumed blown to pieces by too much loud music. And there was an intermittent break in the right hand side cable so I had to sit with my head tilted to hear properly.
Then I saw you could still get replacement bits ... all in, less than £30.

And they are gorgeous again! Lovely sound, comfortable, perfect!

Repair, reuse, recycle ... you know it's worth it.
