i use an old stem and a hack saw but the pipe cutter is way better, you should go for that
and in mine i have not more than 1 or 2mm under the stem, safer and the stem doesn't get fucked up, specially the elementary

Yeah, its so you don't have to have a shit ton of spacers on your forks so your stem is lower. And it maybe drops an ounce or so off the weight, but it's not really noticable.

How do you cut it if the threads are on a seperate piece welded into the fork. Just cut until you still have a little rome for the compresion bolt to hit??

PIPE CUTTER WORKS BEST. JUST MAKE SURE YOU DONT CUT IT CROOKED.
