clamp steerer in vise using blocks with blades horizontal. lay 4 or 5 spare sokes
across blades in intervals to use as a visual guide as to where to make corrections.
I learned it from Keith Lippy when he was the instructor at a regional occupational program
for bike repairs in 1972 in San Diego. worked in shops for 26 yrs. and straightened
at least 100 forks that way. tried to walk Branko thru the process on another forum
that's why I brought it up.
