Default Where to buy bits and pieces?


I am in the process of aquiring parts and finishing design for my first real audio project, a MOSFET 150W monster

A few questions on where to buy parts:

1. Where should I buy small, high-quality parts such as RCA jacks and speaker binding posts? They must be insulated as I plan on using an aluminum chassis.

2. Where is a good, inexpensive place to get PCB's made? I can create gerber file outputs, I will use EWB Utiliboard for design.

3. Where can one aquire a nice, heavy, metal knob for the volume control? I don't want a chinsy little plastic unit...

4. I have heard of people using "Frontpanelexpress" to create custom faceplates for their units. What is the consensus on the quality of the units? What other options might I have?

5. Where do heatsinks come from? I need something fairly large....

Thanks for any help!
