I need more threads on my steer tube!
I was building my new De Bernardi SLX tonight and installed the Record headset. I started to put the fork together and noticed I need more threads to cinch up the assembly. Can I take the fork to a shop and just have them chase and thread the steer tube more?
You can if the shop has the right tools.
Alternatively, you may be able to just add a few extra washers on if you don't need the lower stack height, depending on the headset design.

I asked this question recently, the best course of action is to find a qualified LBS with a full Campy tool ensemble with their robust steerer thread dies. They will cut the cleanest threads and butcher the fork less.
