Default the Cascade XXX

The middle plate and base-plate together accounted for about 85% of what one was paying for with a regular Cascade, with 90% of that being the cost of the machine time. i.e. the machine time costs for the middle/base plate represents about 75% of the total cost of a copper Cascade.

The middle and base-plates for the XXX will each have about 3x the machine time involved, for a total of around 3hrs of machine time, as well as super-high quality machine lapping, as well as the base-plate made out of 99.998% pure silver. All up, around the $350US mark or so for each as a rough prediction, and around $260US each for each of the two copper-based prototypes. That's also not including the cost of the CNC programming. i.e. basically 2 long days of workshop time to make 7 blocks.

I can't imagine more than 5 people wanting one (I keep two silvers).
