Hi Eleanor,

No, we don't have the Index basic embossers.  Sorry.

Good night Tony.  I am familiar with DBT and its commands etc and indeed
Braille Embosser's. It is just this one I am puzzled about the rollers
still.  Looks like some powerful machine though.  I will be pleased to have
the Braille on both sides of the page.  How about the Lynch brothers, do you
guys have this emobosser?  Maybe you can help out here if you do.  Many
thanks.

Eleanor
