There are several way to accomplish this reduction.
You can make a shim or you can machine just a bit off the step of the screw.
 
I think this note will help you.

Gents,  
 
Some time in the last 3 years I found an article or received an email that explained and showed pics of how to resolve xs backlash in the compound screw of a 9 inch lathe.  It involved milling a new part that fit between the screw and the marked indicator rings.  Need that article but can't find it now.  Anyone know where that short paper with photographs might be found? Possible in HSM or something attached to an email. I have the rebuild/repair manual but nothing it shows nothing.  
 
Would appreciate any help from the group.  I am traveling from FL to WV over the next few days so pls send email or leave message on one of my phones.  Thanks.
