There isn't one, unfortunately -- no projected price yet, and it's not
on our production schedule to build at present.
We've seen it in action -- it does look very neat -- but it still needs
some ironing out and not much testing has been done as of yet.

Yes, it does, unfortunately. When we came up with the idea for the
sweep board, it wasn't for the Orion II -- it was for the Omni-VII. We
were in the middle of the design cycle on the Omni-VII in early 2005
when we decided to change models to the Orion II, and the capability to
use the new Omni-VII sweep board was also added to the logic system of
the newer version of the Orion. It can't be retrofitted to the original
version of the Orion.
