John, I have a couple of Dymek Alignment Diskettes - which I suspect are
the equivalent of the Shugart SA 120-1 Alignment Diskette. The Dymeks
are punched to be used as either SS or DS disks. I have not used these,
so how they are actually set up is supposition on my part.

I could also supply you with several SSSD formatted disks including
one/some with tracks filled with 1's and 0's as recommended by Tony.
Let me know if any of this is of interest.
