All of the stabilizers I received are so sticky they're unusable. Too bad since my first Ergodox Infinity from the first drop has 4 perfect stabilizers. Where can I buy other stabilizers?

Hey,
Mine too! I only got 2 but they were completely unusable anyway. I thought I was doing wrong at first but I spent over 1 and a half hours trying every orientation possible - I got the Clear DCS keycaps if that makes any difference.
I ended up giving up and put together one half of my Ergodox today without the stabilizers installed -- I figured I could always install them later, but not remove them, so I would play on the other half.
Hearing you were having trouble too is concerning though. It's a annoying, the keys are kind of flimsy otherwise when typing at speed.

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one having issues with the stabilizers. It's my first time using costar stabilizers and it has been extremely frustrating.
In other news, one of my bottom plates has two noticeable scratches on it (the paper protecting the acrylic was even torn), and one of my posts isn't properly tapped and doesn't screw down all the way. Otherwise, the build went very smoothly.

What if you rub some paraffin on the stabilizer? Would that improve the behavior?

Just give them a mechanical displacement. Or use the soldering iron to heat them up and bend them

The problem was not the wire, the problem was that the small insert was a bit offset to one of the sides, this caused the insert to be too far away from one side and too close to the other. I managed to fix the problem by filing the plastic parts with a sandpaper. It's not perfect but it's much better than no stabilizer at all.

Yep, that's what I was talking about. The plastic is very poorly fitted, I had to heat up the plastic with my soldering iron to re-shape it properly.
