I'm doing the grounding mod for my soundcraft 200b... where do I find a buss bar?

The mod is found here:
http://www.tangible-technology.com/articles/200b.html

There is a picture of the buss bar. I went to my local electronics store and they looked at me like I was crazy. Online I can't find one that's like the one in the picture. Where do I look?

I was thinking about doing the same mod to my 200B. You can use a solid core copper wire (heavy gauge) or some turret strips. Make sure there is a solid mechanical contact between the surfaces, never rely on solder alone to carry current. Also, the thicker the wire the less resistance per length = less voltage drop over long runs.

I'm no expert, but I would think you'd start with suppliers leaning toward the 'electrical' rather than electronics based on your picture, which looks like a ground bar found in a panelboard. The wire gauge you're dealing with looks a little bigger than electronics places deal with.

Obviously different than what you want, but all I could come up with on a quick search:
Ace - Square D Ground Bar Kit (PK15GTA)

that's the closest I've seen so far. Thanks.
