I would love to buy refurbished items if they match my usecase.
Right now, i would be in the Second-Hand/Refurbished/Repaired marked for a NEMA17, accompanying driver, an Arduino Mega2560, an old Hotend (Volcano-style if possible, but i take any)...

I feel the lack of proper widespread acceptance of repair instead of throwing away and buying a repaired second hand item instead buying a new one from amazon or Aliexpress

I Only buy broken cars, fix them up and use them to I can no longer find parts. I have noticed the newer the car the harder they are to repair, and find parts which is disappointing.
