good for finding good deals

http://eBay.com
great place to buy anything for good prices

http://transformerland.com
good place to identify transformer parts (and also, if you use eBay to buy transformers, helps you to find out if the transformer you're bidding on is really 100% complete)

http://tformers.com
fabulous place for news on transformers.
