    Hi, just trying to see if I’m over thinking this/being unreasonable or just used to seeing brazed or epoxied forks where the crown race seat is a bit neater/covered in grease?

    Bought a heavily discounted new M-Part hybrid fork as the one on my current commuter bike needs repainting before winter and I still need to use my bike for work in the meantime.

    Finish looks pretty tidy except there is a gap between the crown race seat and steerer body. Weld underneath the seat looks fairly substantial. I can slide a piece of paper 3-4mm in as shown in the pics most of the way around.

    If it is safe, just a bit of Kurust and smidge of JB weld to fill the gap before getting it faced?

    Spoke to the retailer and they accepted as faulty straightaway, so will be posting them back shortly.
