I just recieved a road bike frame and was hoping to build it up. I noticed that the threads for the bottom bracket were quite worn and when I screwed in the bottom bracket it wobbled quite a bit. It stays in the frame but doesn't sit as firmly as it should. I was hoping someone had an idea of how to fix this problem without permanently gluing it into place. Any tips or suggestions would be nice.

Several wraps of Teflon tape should tighten up the fit and remove the wobble. I'd try that first.
