Source for metal films?

Source for metal films?
Especially in large values--Mouser diesn't have 2W resistors over 1M, and in some values (like, say, 220k) they only have flameproofs that are as much as $5 a piece--whoa! Is there a place to go for the values I need?  
BTW, if you are reading this Randy Aiken, what ever happened to your plan to sell assortments?  
Thanks, all.

Chris ( CMW amps )

Really don't know if this helps but I do order my 2 Watt MFs from Farnell , they have agents in the uk and ( thank God :) ) in the Netherlands afik .  
If you only need a couple ( 1.6 or 2 Watt ones ) I can mail you a couple .  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Thanks, Chris, as always, you are most kind. I will check out Farnell, see if they sell in the US. I appreciate your offer, but I am looking to refit 3-4 amps this summer, so I think I need to find a source. (If I am in a bind for just a few of some value, though, I will email you.) Thanks.

Digikey carries Beyschlags in 2w. I suspect stock is a problem.

Thanks, Carl. That looks good, too. It does look like nobody has much of anything over 1M, though.

Thanks, MOB, that looks like great resource in general.
