There are a number of complete tool cases on ebay now or recently just under $3k.
Transaction prices I have followed are about $2-2.5k

Having the additional threaded guides and dies is nice, lacking the French BB taps is unfortunate.

About 9 years ago I bought on ebay a complete set with the added guides, taps and dies in a buy-it-now format.
These tools are very nice and make working on a bike a real pleasure.
I got lucky on the price.

Euro-Asia Imports allegedly has a number of complete tool chests still in inventory.
I would talk to them before spending elsewhere.

I'm not in the boat to buy that one or the cheaper priced one, I just think it's a neat collection of tools. My tool collection is done one at a time, here and there, as I need a tool and have the spare funds to get it.

There are still brand new ones available, if one has the money.

Maybe your LBS will cut a deal if you let them use it on occasion.

I notice no price listed on the EAI site. Are they still making these sets?

Some of the tools, yes. The complete tool chest, no.
Euro-Asia has long been known to buy long on Campagnolo inventory. They also had good relations with Campagnolo. EAI is the distributor who had the 1977 or so special run of Hi-Lo hubs made, reportedly 500 sets back then could get you a "special". A bit later they bought out what was probably the unsold BMX parts and sold them off.

All this talk of Campagnolo tools has paid off I picked up a bunch of Campagnolo tools none of the big tools but most of the wrenches and small tools at a yard sale with one 50th Anniversary Crank Dust Cap remover and a bunch of Campagnolo BMX NOS parts

They still have complete campy tool kits.

IIRC, EAI doesn't sell retail; you have to buy through a dealer.
