welcome to the forum M.E.
spend a few minutes cruising the internet for Router Bit Profiles and get familiar with the names. The profile that you show is called a RoundOver.
buy bits as you need them, not necessarily in a "kit" form will save you money in the long run.

Thanks! I have done that for a couple of days and haven't come across the correct one yet. I will continue to look, but hoping that someone on this forum will see it and know offhand which one it is.

That's a fairly common Beading bit. Like this....

This is a Freud Quadra Cut bit. Four cutters to make amazingly smooth cuts. Here are two images of different bit types. Very useful because they show the profile the cutter makes.

I like the bits where you can change out the bearings to get different profiles. such as the bead bits mentioned.

I love them, too. I've had to order hard to find special sizes to get the necessary profile I needed to match multi-bit profile cuts. They make the job a lot easier and safer than fiddling with a fence.
