Parkerizing phosphate and oil finish auto parts using a roaster oven


To heat my solution I’m going to use a
roaster oven this is an 18 quart pick this up at a yard sale wouldn’t
recommend using the one out of the kitchen because you might not want to
cook in it again I’ve got a temperature gauge through a modified hole in the lid
and right now we haven’t started it yet but we’re looking for about 200 degrees
temperature to allow our parker rising or phosphate and oil finish to be
applied to the metal the roaster oven has heating settings on it i’ve got it
set for about 275 i found that when you open the lid you lose a lot of heat so I
usually try between 275 and 300 somewhere in there whatever you’re using
for a heat source you’ll have to modify it but you’re looking for about 180 to
200 for the process this is what my parts look like after they’ve been
blasted as you can see remove the paint any rust corrosion and otherwise from
them and which a parts nice and clean try not to touch them with your skin
wear gloves keep the oil off of them you can see they look pretty nice compared
to what they look like when they went in or came off the car actually oh by the
way don’t forget to do your hardware it’s great to have good-looking hinges
and hood latches but the hardware you can spin that up to the same way and
protect it with the phosphate and oil finish you can see these are all these
have all been blasted they were pretty cruddy looking when I started and
they’ll get a nice coated finish when you’re done also got everything set up outside to do a
phosphate and oil finish on some hood hinges and hood latch as you can see
I’ve got a pair of tongs with non-scratch ends I’ve got my manganese
dioxide right here ready to go for my phosphoric acid I’m using k’rud Kutter
cleaning edge seems like everybody’s got their own formula you can tweak it to
your liking but this is what I’m using today 4 gallons of distilled water
that’s 16 quarts in an 18 quart roaster one plug a steel wool right here three
cups k’rud Kutter concrete cleaner next edge this is my source for the
phosphoric acid five tastes tablespoons of manganese dioxide and that’s in the
cup right here that should give me a nice black finish if you want gray you
can use a different dioxide and as always
remember to add acid to the water not water to the acid and yes it’s windy out
here today what are we doing here we’re adding the acid to the water three cups of thread cutter phosphoric
acid and then we’re gonna add the steel wool and it’ll immediately start bubbling okay it is bubbling probably we’re back
gone cuz we lose heat as we’re working we weren’t just a little over 200
degrees and it’s going to bounce back up pretty soon we also need to put in the
magnesium we also need to put in the manganese
dioxide over here go cook that for a little bit but
otherwise me let me get back up to temperature all right we’re ready to go here I’m
going to take the nuts and bolts first I got him in the plastic tray using the
tongs and I’m just going to set him in here and as you can see they start to
bubble immediately so we know something’s happening a lot of people
recommend doing this timing it 20 minutes we’ll see what it looks like in
20 minutes is that Kelly fries I’m inside there ought to agitate those
nuts so I’ll grab the train just wiggle it
back and forth agitate it that way if they get coated more evenly I’m getting
agitated – at this point while we’re at it what’s going to put that hood latch
in there okay we’re ready to go ahead and take
the hardware out let’s see what it looks like here and I’ve got my neutralizing bath right
here come in take them out you can see they look nice and dark take and spread
them out over here to dry the drive we got a nice nice good
coating on them and as soon as they’re dry it will go ahead and hit them with
the wd-40 oil on there we go we’re gonna take a spring out get in here that’s good that’s good me nice Cody not
mistaken there’s one more injury got the rubber tongs it’s a little
easier on the finish I guess all righty righty I’m gonna go ahead
coat these okay I like to look at that sound over here great tip hey time to put the hood
hinges in hopefully I get both in at the same time you can see it calms down when
you take everything out I have to go to plan B oops all right we got them submerged mission
accomplished cook those for another 20 minutes or so
so we guess what comes out hey now we’re ready to go ahead and take the hinges
out nice finish on that all right there you have it oil and
phosphate or Parker Eisen in a what I call this thing roaster well there you
have it Parker izing or oil and phosphate in a
roaster 18 court thanks for watching my video
