For those of you that have made control panels, where have you sourced all the parts?

Thanks in advance.

What wire did you get from McMaster Carr? I was planning on just using some 12 or 14 guage that I have laying around.

.

what you are planning to use will work. I needed 18g for the 7pin connectors to make the box removable.

I buy all my switches, relays, terminal blocks...ect. from local electronic surplus shops. You can get some killer deals from surplus shops.

I think Carson Palmer might be a good source for a game of catch, though. Better than Cole-Parmer anyway.

I found what I wanted on Cole Palmer and McMaster Carr. I then searched ebay for the same stuff at a lower price.
