"Metal prep on a lathe"



2002

Q. I am removing paint prior to repainting an old lathe. The base material is cast iron. Many of the components have machined surfaces. For example the tailstock has a close fitting hole for its spindle. I am considering using one of the solutions generically referred to as 'metal prep' prior to priming. These generally leave a thin phosphate layer which inhibits rust. Will this layer interfere with the fit of mating parts such as spindles and bolts in threaded holes?
