Gerard,

I think you mean Braille 'DYMO' Gun rather than 'Demo' gun?

I have one which I bought from the RNIB, but I have stopped using it
because every time you press down to cut the tape, a small section of
tape finds it's way into the insides of the gun.  After a while these
clog up the gun and the tape will no longer insert into the thing.  It
is possible to take the thing apart and empty the accumulated fragments
of tape out, but that gets to be a drag after a while.

Instead I use one of the metal things that the RNIB sell to Braille onto
Dymo tape with my Perkins.  The Braille is much more tactile than from a
Dymo gun, but of course a Perkins isn't especially portable.

Mike
