A customer has old painted woodwork (window casings, baseboards, doorframes, etc) that is easily pealed/scraped with just a fingernail. I’m assuming it was originally painted with oil then at some point repainted with latex. Instead of stripping all the wood (which I dread) can I seal it with something like Zinsser Peal Stop then paint it with an oil finish coat?

Yes that would be a good way to go short of removing the latex which would not be worth the effort in my opinion.

I think if it is pealing that easy,no matter what you use.
If the layers underneath do not have a good bond to what it is painted to you will have more trouble down later in time.

I should have mentioned that the paint can be scraped down to a solid layer of paint.

If it can be scraped down to a solid layer if you prime with anything it will still come off at the point of those layers that are peeling.
I wouldnt prime or paint over anything like this you are asking for trouble as soon as that old stuff finally lets go no matter what you did (unless you scraped and sanded) the new on top will come with it.
They make a really good scraper called the devil scraper is about $18.00 for a 3 inch and $12 for the 2 inch these arent like the black handled things that just make horrible sounds,throw those darned things away.Sold at M enards or h ome depot,and paint retailers well worth the $$.
