Many different cutting bits are available, the most common being groove bits and edge bits. Tungsten-carbide-tipped bits offer high quality, and some may be titanium-impregnated. HSS (high-speed steel) is another common material. Bits are often purchased in boxed sets, but they can be bought separately.
