Default Affordable binding posts for metal chassis suggestions

I'm looking for some binding posts that are easily insulatable from a metal chassis. Maximum price is $10 for a set of 4. And I'd rather not pay $33 for shipping to canada like parts-express wants. (Maybe if I call they could give me a break, as they have free shipping for US orders over $100, at least knock the amount it would cost to ship in the US off the total.) I'd probably order a boatload of them, especially if someone who has actually held them in their hands can vouch for them.

A couple ideas:
Mini Gold Plated Insulated 5-Way Binding Post Set 2 Red 2 Black

The Madisound Speaker Store

I used the cheap one's from partsconnexion.com. No cross border shipping involved. http://www.partsconnexion.com/product7483.html

I'd recommend the same ones as Jeff -- i have seen these on the backs of 5-10k commecial offerings. Decent even cheaper ones can be found as ApexJr.com.

Would be much easier to work with individual terminals. How do you insulate those ones from the metal chassis? Those would be great for speakers though. I have a few of that style already.

They naturally insulate from the chassis, you'd have to really work at it to get them to not. The mounting plates create an insulated sandwich. They are a pain to use on speakers.

They have industry standard 3/4" spacing and are easier to work with than individual posts. If you feel they are too close together you are probably using speaker wire that is too fat.

For mr Raccoon, the Partsconnexion certainly make the most sense, and if he wants to go with wider spacing than the standard 3/4" as Dave noted, well they have zoomy blingy models as well
