Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Threaded headset bummer

So i had an uncut threaded fork that i had to cut to fit my headset and such. At first it was to long but after cutting it little by little and not watching i may have cut it to short. There is enough room for everything to thread on but the top nut doesnt have very many threads to turn on.

My main problem is no matter what i do i can not get the fork to not wobble. Its either to tight or to loose there is no middle. I put everything together right fork race is right cups are in all the way nothings crooked everything sits great. Im using a Tange Levin headset the NJS one not sure if there is a stack height difference between non-NJS and NJS. Anyway is there a headset with a shorter stack height? Or how can i fix this? Or do i need a new fork?
