The cutters for 1 inch forks come in two different diameters, 26.4 and 27.0 mm. First determine which diameter your bearing race is. The letters JIS would indicate a diameter but I can't remember which one. Somebody will have to chime in here. The paint should be removed first in either case but if the fork is 27.0 and the bearing race is 26.4, all the pounding in the world won't help. Ask me how I know. I think you are dealing with two different sizes too. A halfway decent bike shop should be able to help, just make sure they are measuring or finding markings that say for sure which size your bearing race is. Edit: looks like John D Thompson beat me to it.
