FWIW I have not had problems using the aluminum angle stock available at
hardware stores with Switchcraft 112-type jacks or the
not-as-nice-but-cheaper Neutrik imitations I've been buying recently.
Despite my assertion about epoxy, on recent projects I've used short pieces
of angle stock sandwiched between the jacks and the panel. If you cut two
pieces you only have to drill holes for two jacks. See

http://studionebula.com/blog/diy-synths/cv-processing-module for a photos of
modules built this way.
