    Cryogenic treatment is an extension of the quench process to eliminate "retained austenite".

    No retained austenite = no cryogenic treatment necessary.

    Manually actuated screws generate a lot of force even at low torque. For example, a 3/8" screw at 40 ft lbs generates 6400 lbs of axial force.

    Taking a SWAG, I'd say maybe 0.005-0.010".

    Are you finishing both diameters in the same operation / same turret index?

    What's your finishing stock allowance? Have you measured the diameters after roughing, and how do they compare?
