diagnosed the problem but they don't have the fork jig, so they suggest I find somebody with one to get it fixed. The frame
is from the 60s, so making sure everything is aligned properly would be useful anyway.

Why is there such an apprehension when it comes to fixing frames and forks? Failure or improper installation of brakes, stem or wheels can cause a serious or fatal accident as well, yet working on those parts is considered perfectly safe, and is performed routinely by amateurs.

On my particular bike, both frame and forks are steel, where you get ample warning from the bike before catastrophic failure.
