Ah, I can see that you've tried this method before then.. :lol:

You're right of course, great care is needed when you start to tighten the nuts up and the cups start to press in.

I've got a similar home made job but to lessen the alignement isses I tacked some tube onto the flat plates (washers in stevek's case).

I also put a bit of thin rubber on the plate to same scratching nice King headsets too - it also keeps the headset where I want it when lining things up.

For crown races as previously mentioned, pvc pipe or copper pipe works a treat.
