Hello, Keith Welcome: You go ahead, and ask. There is no question that you ever need to apologize for. You will find that Craftsman has a good name, and is liked. I have craftsman and ryobi.and craftsmen are good. To start off, i bought a set of inexpensive bits from Lowe's, or Menard's They are the carbide bits, and i would get 1/2 in. bits. They are better because the extra material in the bit helps to lower the chattering. They also feel more solid when your routing. i got some bits that i found i used more that others, like the 1/4 and 3/8 straight bits. I got a few good bits for those, and although i haven't done it, i recommend some 3/8 up, and down spiral bits. from there, you can buy any thing else that you find yourself using a lot in the good bits, and watch for some great sales, or E-bay, big box kits for other uses. And Sears for the combo pack routers. They will cost a lot less, and you will have a standard, and a plunge router base that has all the bells and whistles. The red top. On sale, the combo will be around 100 dollars, normally about $130.00. That is a great price for a good router. Good luck, and have a happy Thanksgiving.
