Default Incra Hinge Jig Question

I just ran across an old thread concerning the Incra Hinge Jig and found it fascinating, so much so I am going to order one for myself. Now my question is what kind and size of Bullnose bits do you use? I was looking on Amazon and noticed they come with and without bearings. I did see a full set from 1/8" to 1/2" that was a bit steep for my budget so I was thinking a 1/4" and a 3/8" would suffice for my purposes as a starting point.

Thanks for any and all input.

When something is advertised as being foolproof there is always a better class of fool that comes along to prove them wrong.

You will need a router table with a fence. It won't matter whether the bit has a bearing or not for this use, but it may come in handy for later uses. I bought a set of bull nose bits from Woodline USA Woodline USA - Router Bits, Woodworking, Woodworking Tools to use with my hinge jig. Any bull nose bit of the right size will work. The best place that I've found to buy the brass rods is the local welding supply store.
