futurlec.com and .parts-express.com both have really cheap switches, leds, resistors, potentiometers etc. So if you need parts you can order there. If anyone finds anything cheaper then tell me :)

Hi kind of a stupid question maybe...
I'm at the point of building a patchbay for one of my machines, in the list I saw the term patchbay sockets.
Googling them I couldn't find them, neither could I find them on electronic part sites, can someone please tell me what the right sockets are required for building a patchbay for the shortricuit connections from the rom chips etc?
What kind of category do they fall in?
Thanks.

Depends what sockets you want to use. I tend to use mono 3.5mm jack sockets as you can pack a lot of them into a small space and they aren't very deep behind the panel:

Other options would be phono sockets which you can get individually or in panels of eight, 4mm single pole sockets sometimes called banana sockets, 1/4 inch jack sockets. Whatever you want really.
