Default Searching for Raw Turrets

I am looking for the raw metal turrets that are used in turret boards like these:

I'd like to use them to solder into my own custom boards to mix PCB and point to point construction. Anyone know a source?

You will find them at mouser. Some of the diy fender amp guys carry them too. But Mouser will have a bunch of different styles. They are made by Keystone. Get the staking tool and anvil. Not that expensive, but the only way to mount them.

Euphonia has insulated screw mount turrets ala Pete Millett - which I prefer, but are more expensive. I got a couple thousand insulated turrets for cheap off of Ebay, but they are hard to find since everyone seems to call them something different. Euphonia will cut you a deal if you buy a quantity - 250 or more if I recall correctly.

Excellent, thanks. I have some of the insulated ones from Euphonia, but they turned out to be more useful for me in theory than practice.

We shall see what you think after you have smacked a few keystones with a hammer...
