Right now I have 6 router bits. Three flush trim bits in different sizes, plus one spare 1/2" fluh trim bit. Then 2 other bits, roundover, and something else - very seldom use either of these. When I think I need a new style of bit my usual practice is to get the cheapest version of that bit off of eBay. Then, if I like the bit, go find a higher quality version. I don't spend money on a lot of bits I won't use, or need. The bits I have now I have had a long time, all American made, and work well. The eBay bits get tossed when they bite the dust, which sometimes is awhile, but others not so long. Works for me.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
