Please post any links, info, part numbers, suppliers, or whatever you have for kegging, here, so we can consolidate our resources and help eliminate redundant threads and posts. Searches for 'Kegging' provide endless results without being able to be specific, but how do you ask what you don't know?

I've got some more but I'm tired and I'm gonna drink beer now.

I'm just getting into kegging and one of the guys in my local homebrew club pointed me to this website for buying CO2 tanks, regulators, parts, etc. The prices are much better than my local welding supply shop and since they have multiple distribution points across the country, deliveries are pretty quick. I ordered yesterday and should receive my tank by Friday.

Thought I would add my experience to this sticky. Do not order your keg supplies from The Beverage Factory (www.beveragefactory.com). They completely jacked my order. I recieved an email conformation when my order was placed saying everything was ready to ship. A week later after no delivery, I call and find out that one item was backordered and they never told me about it. I told them to drop the backordered item and to upgrade my shipping at their expense. They refused. And then I find out that the ball lock couplers for the liquid side which were advertised as having 3/16 barbs actually have 1/4 flare fittings. They told me "Its ok, it will still fit a 3/16 hose. Just run the tube under hot water to sofen it up". Thats just crappy business. Stay away from the Beverage Factory!

Just recently got into kegging, but my buddy has a huge converted chest freezer and i helped him set it up, it holds about 8 corneys or commercial 5gal kegs.
He got everything he needed fromRapids Wholesale.com. They have great prices if you buy bulk. Great customer service too!! Also you can request a free catalog that has Just beer equipment.

I thought this site was pretty good for properly balancing your draft system

I did a disassembly/parts list for corny kegs for my local club, I can't attach a large enough PDF so here's a JPG instead.

Default kegconnection.com - Recommended!

I'd like to add my experience ordering a keg setup from kegconnection.com. Everyone I spoke to was extremely patient and helpful with my questions and with their suggestions on what I should need. I ended up placing an order around noon on Friday, and it was ready for pickup within a few hours. I had asked a friend to pick up the kit for me (he was driving from Austin to Houston that day, and San Marcos isn't too far away), but traffic was bad and they stayed open past 6pm on a Friday evening for him! Their pricing seems quite good, but their outstanding customer service is why I recommend them.
