Potentiometer choices

I have frequently used Alpha pots for my amp builds and been happy with the results. But the particular Alpha pots that I get from Mouser and other sources have a 5/16" x 1/4" bushing. Sometimes, the 1/4" length of that bushing is not sufficient (panel plus chassis can approach 1/4", and then there are no threads left for the nut). So, when you need a longer bushing, what pot choices are there, and who can I buy them from? Obviously, I'd rather not start buying pots that cost $12 each since I am used to $1.50 each, but if it costs a little more, I'll certainly deal.

I use CGE and they are long enough for an eighty-thou chassis and a one-eighth faceplate.Seem to work just fine.Looser feel than alphas.

Yes, I just got a set of CGE's from Metro. But I understand that they are history now. Metro told me that they are going out of business. Oddly enough, the set I got from Metro was a mixture of pots that had longer and shorter bushing lengths. Mojo has them too, but no 1MA pots. These will not be viable for long. So what else is there?
