You're paying for the shipping. Harbor Freight has similar, if not the same, chisels for several dollars less. They also have a set of about a dozen chisles for around $11. I've got both. For what I need they work just fine. I think they're a bargain.

You don't still believe in the Tooth Fairy too, do you?
The reason you didn't get charged for shipping, is because the price is high enough that it "includes" shipping. Ergo, "you" paid for the shipping. TANSTAAFL - There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

HF's set is $6.99 + $6.99 for shipping. They do have their sales on occasion so the price would be a few bucks less but for the OP, he got a better deal at NT than he would at HF, assuming he has to order from them. I have a set of their lathe chisels and for what I do, they work fine. I can't talk to this chisel set.

I got a HF flyer yesterday. They've got their 6 piece chisel set for $3.99. That would be at the store. There's a HF store here now about 20-25 miles or so, a Northern store about the same, and another Northern store a shade closer. All in all I prefer HF. I've got both HF chisels sets, and their el cheapo lathe tool set. They all do fine, so I won't replace them any time soon. Granted I have to pay gas rather than shipping, but I normally combine several chores in one trip, so gas cost is immaterial. Personally I'm not sure if I'd buy something like this without eyeballling it first.
