Lathe tools & supplies

Can anyone recommend any good companies that sell lathe chisels and other accessories? Who are your favorite suppliers and what are your favorite tools?

Here's a few:
http://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/ they have everthing you need
http://www.pennstateind.com/ They have everything too, but not name brand and a little cheaper. I have a few of their chisels and they are great.
I've also made a few of my own...learned how at this site, http://www.aroundthewoods.com/ and a few others.

http://www.packardwoodworks.com/ These people have been great as well as Craft supplies.
Woodcraft is also a good place to get tools.
http://www.thompsonlathetools.com/ These are my favorite tools but you will have to make your own handles. They hold an edge for a very long time and I love the shapes of the tools. they also come to you ground to the proper angles and sharp. That can't be said about a lot of tools.
