Stainless Steel Chainplates Wire Wheeled
You may have especially if the wire wheel was a steel wheel.I had a set of a stanchion bases welded up on a prior boat. The shop used a steel wheel to clean up the base when they were done and for years after I had rusting problems with those bases. I eventually polished them with a course rubbing compound followed by a finer polishing compound and it greatly helped the problem.
