Default I need a terminal to solder stuff to. Do they make this part and what is it called?

Hi, I have been building some amps and preamps, and some of my designs have everything soldered to panel mount components, (pots switches etc).

Basically, almost all of the circuit nodes fall on a terminal of a panel mount device, like a leg on a pot for example, but there are a few connections just hanging out in the air.

I was wondering if there is some type of terminal that can be mounted to solder some leads to. I am imagining maybe a nylon tube that you can attach to the faceplate with a screw, and has a solder post or screw you connect leads to on the other side?

I have included a drawing of what I'm thinking of of maybe there is something that mounts that just has terminal to solder to similar to the rectifier shown, only just terminals to solder to not interconnected.

Default thanks everyone

These all look like great ideas. I think I may search for some "insulated turret terminals" I can just drill a hole wherever I need. There are only about 3 or 4 areas on the circuit where this is needed, but this will really come in handy. Thanks everyone!

Yep I would probably go with terminal strips if you need more than one terminal in the same area. They also make some with single terminals if you need that.

Default This single terminal strip would come in handy

I could definitely use these here and there. About 50cents a piece. I may order some of these.

Definitely terminal blocks AKA barrier strips. The type that nec3 showed a picture of also have handy things like pre-made jumpers and whatnot.
