Ok, I will try to give you a little guidance here. On the schematic if the cap symbol has a + listed then it is an electrolytic cap and the voltage rating is listed as well. Be sure the cap you buy is at least this much voltage rating but there is no need to go too far over spec due to cost and size. All other caps could be polypropylene or polyethylene caps and just for ease get 250V rated or more for those. The resistors should be 1/2watt or more unless it says different on individual ones. Carbon Film, or metal film will be fine. The pots could be Alpha brand or whatever with a 1/4inch shaft and 3/8inch bushing.
All of these things will be easy to order at antique electronic supply as one order. Make sure you read all the fine print on the schematic pages and look at everything closely in the schematic.
If you want to put together a sheet with what you are thinking before you order I would be glad to look it over.
