Quality Brailler Repair
If you have a Perkins Braille writer that is not working as well as it should, or is not working at all Quality Brailler Repair Service can help. The basic price for cleaning, lubricating and adjusting a Brailler is $75, and remember there is a 1 year warrantee on all work. The braille writer can be shipped using free matter for the blind.

After your Braille Writer has been serviced we recommend that you keep it covered when not in use. To this end John Hardenís Perkins Brailler Service has made a soft black canvas machine cover that is very affordable. This cover fits the machine perfectly, has a slit in the top for the handle and is water resistant. And the best part is this cover sells for only $20.

We are now able to refinish your machine so it looks as good as it works.

If you need your Brailler repaired, if you need a new cover for your Brailler, if you need to buy a used Brailler or if you need your Brailler refinished contact John Harden by email
