Router bits are very much application specific.
Buy as many 1/2" shank as possible.
Buy them when you need them with the following possible exceptions:
Buy a good quality rounding over set (1/8", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2")
(My cove bit set is an el-cheapo YMMV)
Buy a good quality straight bit set (1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4")
Buy a good 1/4" up spiral bit
Buy at least one good pattern bit (I like 3/4")
Buy at least one good flush trim bit (I like 3/4")
The above are my general purpose "work horse" bits I use over & over.
They are of good quality.
Anything else has to make me think I will use it more than once to buy
"good", otherwise it is an el-cheapo.
