Man, thought I’d started enough threads on this so you didn’t have to ask this question.

The Jobst method works sometimes. Oftentimes the problem is one blade is slightly longer than the other - possibly because the rakes don't match. I made my own fork reraker and have learned how to massage them to be even, dropouts aligned, and parallel.
If someone tells you that you have enough bicycles and you don't need any more, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
