    How long does hard chrome plating take? If that's an option, grind or turn the parts a little oversize, get them plated, then grind to spec.

    I don't know if this will help, or if you want to risk it, but I've made fixturing to turn a CNC machine (VMC, but could be done on a lathe too) into a broaching machine.
