Volunteer needed for floppy dump - Silicon Valley

I'm looking for a volunteer in or close to the Silicon Valley area to dump a few floppy disks (hopefully no more than two). The disk(s) in question is/are from a fairly rare Apple // title, which is essentially a classroom word processor. This particular title is not one that is readily available for download from the usual online archives (at least not in my searching anyway). I have established contact with the current holder of the disk(s), however they only have the floppies themselves and no longer have access to the necessary equipment.

We are/were ideally looking to obtain a flux transition dump from something like a Kryoflux, however a fallback plan is simply to obtain a sector dump from period equipment so that it can be used under emulation. Ideally this would be done by somebody who has previous experience with ADTPro or equivalent dump/transfer methods..

If the above description sounds like you, I'd appreciate a reply.

Thanks.

Re: Volunteer needed for floppy dump - Silicon Valley

I can help. I have three regularly-used Apple IIGS systems which can image 5.25 or 3.5 disks and transfer images to USB flash drives or to a Mac via serial port and then upload via email etc.

I live in San Jose near 85 & 17 and work near 280 & Saratoga.

The title is on 5.25 floppy and is called Wordsmith.

@JBrooksBSI, thanks for your offer. I'll see if that suits my contact.
