I can take every tool I need to work on my FG in my medicine kit.
Do you have loose ball or sealed components?
Threaded or threadless headset?
I recommend buying park tools on a per needed basis. For me it was the Park HCW-4 and HCW-5 for my loose ball bottom bracket.
Then, I got a Park CCP-2 crank puller for square taper cranks.
Then, I got Park HCW-6 and HCW-15 headset wrenches (these are double sided, and the HCW-6 doubles as a pedal wrench) for my threaded headset.
Then, I got Park 15/16mm and 17/18mm cone wrenches for hub adjustments.
Then, I got a Park CT3 chain breaker.
Other items, such as work stands, truing stands, headset presses, etc, I just use at the LBS or purchase if cheap. I found a Park TS-6 truing stand used for $50.
EDIT: Also get some grease, a patch kit, a presta to schrader adapter, electric tape, needle nose pliers, small screwdriver for chain master link, and a ruler.
