Home Depot once carried a set of Buck brothers tools for $30. Rockler and few others sell them for $104. Craigslist and E-bay carry them from time to time. Watch out for words like vintage and antique tool sets. We are talking about carbon steel tools.
Better off paying few more dollars buying almost HSS tools from Harbor freight and Penn State. HF has a carbon tool set that normally sell for about $9.
Good quality carbon steel tools sell for same price as HSS tools. Not sure there is a vendor here in US that carries any from the main suppliers of turning tools like Ashley Iles, Henry Taylor, Crown, Cherry Tree, and Diefenbacker.
