Drive alignment

I have a TRS80 Model 12 that's been upgraded to a 16B (with two 8" slim-line floppies). I am trying to copy some discs but not having much joy.

One theroy is the media is cactus.

The other theory is that following some reading about these machines, because of the size of the drives they tended to get out of alignment regularly. How do I check alignment on the old classics.
