Nope.  From Lincoln - the breakdown is:
$7 for one tungsten tip/rod
$10 for the mating aluminum heatsink
$5 for a ceramic base.

I've purchased lots of them.  Can't go wrong.

Or if you are lucky and are *just* at the right place (Dayton Hamvention) 
you can get a ceramic base +4 rods + 4 heatsinks for the low low price of 
$5!  Life is good! :)
