Involute Cutter Set

Why is this in the junk drawer? Because I suspect too good to be true, even from our friends...

Maybe it's so cheap because the OD and bore are metric ?

The one chinese involute gear cutter I got did have a metric bore, but I knew that going in and just made a suitable bushing. I need to cut one 16 PG gear, hoping the cheap cutter will last that long in steel - yet to be tried.
