modular underwater electronics canister - (camera, lighting, etc)...

we made this on a large lathe by rounding out some heavy plastic and boring the center.  the air-tight plug in the back clamps down on the power/data cable and the front face compresses an o-ring with the stailness bolts.  we drilled and tapped the screw holes with a 3-axis DRO mill.
