Default 400 bucks for crappy weld samples?

Just came across this on C/L and had no idea this even existed.

Some of the add:

The five-piece set is designed for training structural welding inspectors and welders. The samples include: 2 fillet-welded lap joints; 4-piece bend sample set; groove-welded butt joint. The variety of discontinuities exhibited includes: undercut, overlap and porosity. In addition, measurements of reinforcement and fillet weld size can be readily made.

It is recommended for those preparing for the Practical (Hands-on) portion of the AWS Certified Welding Inspector examination. It is also excellent for other weld examination training programs requiring hands-one experience.

I paid just under $400 for these, A must have before taking part B of the CWI exam. Also adding a copy of Part B examination book of specifications, and a copy of my practice examination and sample questions for visual inspection workshop. $400 for everything

No offence to the seller, its just I have never seen this, my instructor just had some random pieces in his class that showed a fail in the bend test. 400 just seems like a lot of coin to spend on some seagull turds.

That's what I was thinking when I saw the ad.
