Not sure where to look for phosphoric acid solution (ha). Or how to work with it…carefully I’m sure. I wonder if the ferric phosphate coated would make the collar or housing that the clamping/moving end sits on tighter?. I’m sure its the wrong term, but the end opposite of the wheel moves…and 50-100 years ago this rascal was used as a furniture clamp. It has crushing strength. Anyway, the one end rides on these iron collars. Here is a picture of two of them, upside down. Someone can come up with the correct term:

I’m wondering if the coating would negatively impact how easy it glides? Might be worth a modest reduction if it reduced the rust.

Yes Walker…it basically is a large pipe clamp. It was sitting outside in my buddies farm…he acquired it roughly 10-15 years ago. He decided to restore it a few weeks ago and here it is. We added the drawers for functionality and looks.
