    A fellow Big Gunner reached out to me to make a set of 3D printed Iowa cannons.
    ...I figured - well, why not??

    After life got out of my way, I’m finally able to get back to this project.

    I upgraded the chamber bolts on all of my cannons designs, in preparation for the more pressure needed for 1/4” Iowa bearings.

    Double checked with @nmmichris on space requirements.

    And the prototype is nearly ready for testing!
