Problem after cutting my steerer tube

A few weeks ago with the help of several of you here I cut my first steerer tube. Things went so well that I decided to cut down the tube on my other bike. After I put it back together and I tighten down the top bolt into the headset it gets so tight the I can't turn the wheel. But if I loosen it just a little it gets so loose that the tire and bars move independently.

What am I doing wrong? The star nut was pretty close to the cap so I knocked it down a few mm but the problem is still there. I might have another mm or two I can knock the star nut down and still reach it with the screw but I don't really know if that is the problem
