Spiral bits are probably best buy straight bits work fine.

Any kind of specific router to use?

I use a 2 Flute up 1/4" bit. Freud sells em for CNC routers. I like em, its much easier on the router so the way i see it, it is well worth the investment. They are around $20-30. I use a craftsman for my work at home but if i could afford it i woulda gone with a porter cable router. By far my favorite routers i've used.

Also, if your using the jasper jigs make sure the router is compatible.
