Most Gold Crown III's that I've seen originally had bronze castings/trim. In most cases, the plating has worn off, exposing the ugly pot metal beneath.

Don't be scared.

The biggest key is alignment of your saw. Make sure that your blade is at a perfect 90 degrees.

Also, you will likely want to make fixtures/jigs. So often, I see rail caps that...

If you're careful, a handled scraper, with 4" blades works very well. Alternatively, you could use the styles that use utility blades.

If the buildup is very heavy, and a bit too much for...

If you're that close to Mark Gregory, there is no need to find anyone else. Mark's pricing may be slightly higher than some others, but your rails will be perfect.

The angles used for a Monarch Superspeed and a modern day Superspeed are absolutely NOT the same.

Agreed! ProForm505 is a great economical cloth. Good durability, installs similar to Simonis 860HR (tight stretch), and the price is very low. Speed is also similar to 860HR.

I install a ton of it.

I think that you should be fine with 141 x 12 degrees. However, if you are looking for something a bit more forgiving, you could perhaps increase the downward angle.
