If you want the wires, please send $1 for USA address, or $3 for international address to my paypal email to cover the shipping and cost of mailer. Please make sure you enter your username in the payment note. If you don't have a record of your invoice/paypal to locate the correct payment email, you can ask me in a PM.
THANKS


MX-Stabilizer 2.x - .85/pc. $1.15/pc.
MX-Stabilizer Space (6.25 or 7.0) - 1/pc. $1.35/pc.



Same price for PCB or PLATE versions with both options available. MOQ for each size is 100.

GMK is offering us a rather nice deal on some surplus PCB with MX black. These are an 1800 style PCB that will come preconfigured for ANSI but also support ISO layout.


They lack a controller but have a convenient pin header that could be used to hook up a teensy or similar. As assembled they would be 2KRO. The 3 lock switches have support on the PCB for in switch lock lights.
Price will be 15/ea with approximately 300 pieces available. This option is now added to the order form as of 24 July. If you would like to add this item please just resubmit the form.

Buyer will be responsible for payment of goods, shipping costs, for all paypal fees, and an additional $1 groupbuy fee. You will be billed and all orders collected via paypal in USD. All orders will be sent via USPS. Shipping fees will vary based on what is ordered and it's destination. I will not be liable for uninsured/nontrackable orders damaged or lost during shipping.



Orders (total):
2.x PCB - 2500
2.x PLT - 2600
6.25 PCB - 500
6.25 PLT - 600
7 PCB - 400
7 PLT - 350
PCB w/ MX blacks - 60

FAQ:
Q: Can I combine this with my DOLCH or DARK PBT order? A: Yes, this will be done automatically and you won't be charged additional shipping (unless you order in large volume then you will be charged the difference).

Am I right to assume 1x unit = 2x plastic levelers + 1x wire?  That is to say, 1x unit will be all the parts needed to stabilize exactly 1 key?

Yes each is for a complete assembly of leveling kit.

I will crosscheck orders before invoicing to determine if shipping is required or not.

Ivan, who made those stabs and wires exactly? Can I assume those stabs and wires are the same as those on original Cherry board? I got some stabs and wires that are not made by Cherry/GMK before and they are not good at all. Just want to make sure they are original Cherry stabs before I jump in. Thanks!

OK. I will get a groupbuy thread for stabilizer started soon. GMK says they have LOADS of them on hand so there shouldn't be any problem fulfilling our demand.

They're from GMK.

Thanks. Yeah I saw that post earlier. What I'm really concerned about is, are these stabs and wires same as original Cherry ones. I guess the plastic part must be the same but are the wires the same spec as the original ones?

Don't want to be mean but here they are http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/keyboard-parts.html right ? . If so Plate-people can buy it directly from here

Except those are Costar stabilizers, not Cherry. Not the same thing. Plate Mounted Cherry Stabilizers =/= Costar. Here's some pictures showing the differences.



Pics from WFD in the GH60 thread

If your stabilizers look like the Costar ones and you want more stabilizers, this buy isn't for you. You can get Costars from WASDKeyboards like it was pointed out.

Placed order. Need some stabilizers for keyboard project, why not to try Cherry. Corstar/Cherry anyway they do the same job.

Mostly I only care about the address being all in the same order so it's quick and easy for me to copy into stamps when making the mailing labels. Some countries have things in different orders and sometimes it's kind of ambiguous.
This is fine
name
123 street
town, state/province
post code
country

or this is fine
name, 123 street, town, state/province, post code, country

MOQ already reached
on both 2.x and 6.25 plate. Half way there for the others.

I never actually used a plate mount cherry stab. Where does the wire go, above or below the plate?

Does it make sense to buy one type over the other if you aren't sure where it's going to be used yet? Like how you could buy cherry pcb mount switches but clip the plastic nubs and basically convert them to plate mount.

Wire goes under the plate. They're cheap, so you could always get a set of each types just in case.

Only 2x.  2x stabilizers are used for a number of different sized keys (backspace, both shifts, enter, and numpad + and enter).

I started bending my own spacebar wires lately, but it is becoming more an more difficult to find even the 2x1 units through distributors as of late. At these prices, it just makes sense to stock up.

In general, PCB mounted is much more common.  I'd say basically all Korean customs use PCB mounted. 

Phantom and Ergodox are two popular customs that you might need plate mounted stabs for.  But it might be a moot point anyway since stabilizers are optional for Ergodox and you can use costar stabs (easier to find) with Phantom.
