Potentiometers and circuit board material
Does anyone know of a source for 1Meg ohm  
audio taper pots and 1/8th inch G10 board and  
eyelets/turrets in Canada. Seem's these items  
are not that easy to find here.

You might do a google for "House of Jim" in Manitoba.  
I believe Mouser has a $100 USD minimum order for Canada. If you order look close at the product description to make sure that the pots are indeed audio (log) taper and not linear. Very few industrial distributors carry audio taper pots - or even know that there is more than one kind of pot! Those stores sell in industrial volumes and these days only tubeheads like ourselves would ever order an audio taper pot. It would not make sense to inventory for what to Mouser is such low volume. Still, they might have a tubehead in charge of inventory who makes sure they're in the catalogue! :)

Like a bunch of others around here, I have quite a few 1M audio taper pots, but how many do you need?  
I don't use .125" G10 or turrets though.

I get my G10 at McMaster-Carr:  
They ship to Canada. Just search for Garolite.
