If you use hasuís AEK layout plate, matiasí plate mount stabilizers will work just fine with AEK keys. As hasu points out, beyond that there are many variables to consider.

Yes, I was going to get the alps64 pcb and fr4 aek plate, both from Hasu.

Then I guess both stabs and keycaps I've listed would work. Thanks Hasu and crd!

My AEK plate was designed for Apple Extended Keyboard layout, the keycaps you linked doesn't fit on it because its bottom row is completely diffrent. I'd recommend you get from keycaps and stabilizers from Apple Extended Keyboard(including II).

Hello, I need some help, long story short I lifted off this contact pad and now am looking for a solution, the other contact pad is in an okay condition.

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks in advance

Is the PCB compatible with Mekanisk Klippe or KBDfans tofu cases?
I'm thinking about try to build an alps build. Where can I get the stabs?

Yes. These PCBs were designed with universal tray mount cases in mind. Due to alps switch spacing, you wonít be able to screw down at the center standoff but that doesnít appear to be an issue in my experience.
You can source costar stabs from a number of places including the donor boar you harvest your switches and keys from. Matias also has some https://matias.store/products/stabilizer-and-hook-set

I'm encountering an issue with my keyboard. It seems intermittently I'll enter my Layer 2, which is modal, without hitting the trigger key (right Ctrl). I know I'm in it, because tapping right Ctrl will exit the layer and resume normal keyboard operations. I've only noticed this happening since I switched to a USB-C to USB-Mini cable. I certainly don't recall it ever happening with a standard USB-A cable.

Not really sure where to start diagnosing this. Hardware? Software?

Anyone else encountering something like that? I'm attaching my current firmware.

hmm, I haven't heard problem like this from users so far.
I don't think usb cable causes the issue.  Your keymapping looks sane and should work without unexpected layer switching. Your firmware is previous version but I don't thinks it causes too.

I'd guess the key(right ctrl/T2) turns on some reason like switch defect, diode defect or ...

Though, weird things that I cannot guess can happen sometimes.
First, try the latest firmware, you can download from Keymap Editor link below.
Also try other USB cable.

The bottom row looks like 1.5u-1.5u blocker-1.5u-5u spacebar-1.5u, so no it wouldn't work.
