Default knobs, lights and switches?

Looking for a good source for volume knobs and power switches. Also, is it simple to wire a power on light?

Thanks

Also the countless vendors on eBay, generally decent quality, quick shipping, and a often selection hard to find elsewhere.

Default Depending of the look and design you're after.....

....ebone is the best place to look. For knobs search for Raytheon and Alco. Alco makes some nice switches also. JBT and C&K make good switches. For pilot lites I always use an LED with a circuit to the incoming AC rather than a 6.3v wired to the filament winding. Some of these surpus sales places have really unreasonable prices. For rotary switches look for Grayhill or Electroswitch. Ray

They are geared a bit more towards the hobbyist and will often have some useful stuff.
