When I was on a ship with a contingent of Marines there were a number of serious injuries. We supplied spoons and told them to feed themselves.

Should have just given us crayons.  What ship? I was aboard USS Boulder in 1983 or 84.

Printer Update...

The machine is set up in its new digs in the garage. it's attached to a piece of decent plywood using brackets from thingiverse. (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1683033) which makes it a whole lot more stable and helps with holding the bed level.

I added a cover for the power supply. This incorporates a switch as well as a standard plug.  My original cord was wire-nutted and thus not as safe as I would have liked.  (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2247250)

I added a box for the electronics (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2266774) as well as a Raspberry Pi with OctoPi that you can see in the photo.

And then a case for the RPi. (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:703630) The black-on-black motif makes it a bit hard to pick out.

Z-axis end caps really reduce the wobble on the axis as a whole. (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1887828).

Next project: MOSFETs. The hot bed is disconnected right now because it started to run full-on all the time.  I've got parts, and printed mounts but haven't installed them yet. I haven't ventured into the ABS world yet and the machine works well enough without.

Good thing you didn't get a fully functional, modern, up to date printer. You wouldn't have anything to upgrade!!!!

I know, right?  Of course, given my income right now, this is more-or-less what I could afford.
