Check on the Replica Props Forum. People there typically do runs of parts or sell specific parts. The only problem is that you have to be registered to respond or post.

The ANH Obiwan was made up of a British MK3 grenade, an Artimage Shanks sink knob, a gear of some kind, a a 2/3 cell graflex clamp, and the emitter, which I believe they know what it is, but I can not remember.

For an ANH saber, the gear is a booster off of a WW2 machine gun and the emitter is off a Rolls Royce Jet Engine. Both are pretty expensive and somewhat rare so a replica is the best option.

You will also need 2 transistors and a calculator bubble strip.

Join a prop board like was mentioned earlier. Do your research on the parts if you care anything about accuracy!

There was a guy who made great replica parts for the Obi ANH saber. He had a site called Roman's Empire. But a few months ago, he pretty much stopped making parts cuz they had a new baby and he wanted to devote more time to his family.
As was mentioned already, check some dedicated prop forums. There's people who sell/trade lightsaber parts. Another place to check is rebelscum.com, in their prop forums.
