The original seller won't ship to oz, so I pasted the item description into ebay.com.au and got 3 other sellers, interestingly, all also in the UK.

 

Went with this one:

because they were cheapest and have free shipping to here - so I can't see them making much money out of it...

Mine arrived within 4 days and I am very happy with them. Current price on ebay is 2.99.

However, the same thing on Amazon for 1.85 with free delivery...

I've had a set like that for a couple of years, look almost identical except they have a green powder coating. Very nice for the price.

Why, are the tips extra?

I have a couple made by Wilder. Really excellent – I wouldn't be without them. They may even come from the same source. However, I'd never ever buy modelling drill bits off Chinese based eBay sellers again as all those I've bought have been very poor quality in my opinion.

Agree re drill bits - yer gets what yer pays for! Cheapies are ok for plastic but show them metal and they soon run off...

Mine have arrived down here, very pleased with them - thanks for the tip off.

 

Ended up getting 2 sets to distract the missus with one so that makes 12 pairs of tweezers for just under $12. (Thats just 50c per tweez!)

I ordered a set of these 24 Jan and they turned up yesterday - not too bad i suppose since they were on a slow boat from China! seems very good quality although the very fine tips on one pair don't exactly line up (quick twist with the pliers will sort that out though). 

 

Thank you for the great bargain idea!
