Re: edge pro block not perpendicular to plate
I guess you haven't looked at an EdgePro block - multiple screws, smaller... you're thinking of an Edge/LoPro block, which have the Floyd Rose-like 3-large screw arrangement.
Because of all of the through-casting apertures they had to leave in the body of the trem to allow for the string ball end cup parts, passage, and movement, they had to work with less metal in between each saddle station: they put the smaller M3 screws in.
I just looked again at my spares to confirm: M3 x 15mm
Yes that's the spec for the saddle screws as well (although those are button-head, and for this you need flat/countersunk head).
Putting in the longer and stainless screws stopped the excursion of my RG1527CB's trem - and next time I field-strip my other EdgePro equipped guitars, I'll be taking those apart and replacing them as well.
And it won't surprise me to find those blocks having worked loose as well.
