It is probably just as cheap to have a PCB made with no tracks, just the holes. You could even add idents to the turrets and component footprints in silk screen.
I have considered this option, however the turret terminals I found need either 2mm or 3mm boards. The fabricator I normally use (JLCpcb) charges a premium cost for 2mm boards compared to the standard 1.6mm thickness. Can you suggest an alternative supplier for affordable 2mm or 3mm pcbs ?
Drilling can be done with a press drill and good workpiece clamping tbh. What is actual quantity ?
I need about 15 pieces of mixed sizes. Of course it can be done by hand, but it's just gonna take too much time and I don't see how it's gonna cost less than using a machine.
Do you have a dimensioned sketch of the finished product?
It's probably something I could do with my CNC and table saw.
Also a reference drawing of the turrets.
I have attached a draft pdf, this has been optimised to be made on a cnc router using a 2mm bit. Keep in mind the larger pieces would need holes added which I haven't finished drawing yet.
The drawing is made for using a 50cm x 10cm sheet that I can get from my usual parts supplier.
I have left two corners empty to screw the piece on a board.
I imagined the cnc machine would do a first pass drilling all the holes and then each individual piece is fixed using its holes and the machine would do another pass cutting out the shapes.
I am open if you have suggestions for alternative methods.

I was aware about the ready made parts from Keyelco, the single row strips would have been ok but unfortunately the sizes I need are not going to be restocked at mouser or digikey.
