Painting fresh cast before or after machining?

I have some fresh cast peices that I need to eventually paint, but some machine work needs done also, which will involve cutting oil. I have never done this before, but am afraid if cutting oil gets all over the fresh cast, I will have difficulty getting it back out. I was thinking instead, wash them down with laquer thinner out of the gun, epoxy prime, and then do my machine work. Then at least oil couldn"t penetrate other areas. Any thoughts? How do they do it at the factory? Thanks

I would prime and seal them first.

Maybe I'm on the wrong forum, I've since done some reading on the web, and the common theme is drill and tap cast iron with no lubricant. Maybe this is my answer.

Either way, do the machine work first, the machinest will not be able to avoid damaging the paint. All the cast I have worked on is saturated with oil anyway from leaks.
