Just finished assembling my keyboard and it's absolutely gorgeous. I am however frustrated with the quality control. The backspace key on my keyboard gets stuck down after a few minutes of use. I have swapped out a few switches and the problem repeats itself. It seems the issue is with the stabilizers on the backspace key. Has anyone else run into a similar problem?

I had the same issue as you. It was the stabilizers, or more specifically, the distance between them after the key was pressed on. I solved it by sanding down the walls of the shaft pieces that slide up and down inside each of the stabilizers. The travel is still not as smooth as other keys but, with the switch added, it's working fine. I have the font issues as well. It is a beautiful keyboard! I love the way the powder-coat finish catches the light as opposed to the usual reflection off the aluminum.

@flareStack Brilliant! I filed quite a bit off each of the interior pieces and no longer have a sticky backspace key. It definitely isn't as smooth as the rest of the keys and would definitely benefit from a replacement for the stabilizer or key cap, but it's working! Thanks!

Please go ahead and open a ticket flagging your issue, while I'm happy that you are now enjoy the typing experience more I am still concerned that it wasn't as smooth out of the box.

I had the same issue and I was able to clip the legs of the sliders in the stabilizers and lube them, and now my backspace key works like the others if not better.

Same issue here. Now I am just typing without a stabilizer :(
