One type has cutting tips to be replaced, and the other has a head (end) section to be entirely replaced; some of the former type come with an arbor (a shank section) while others have a separate arbor. Materials used for the cutting tooth include carbide type, cermet or ceramics with excellent abrasion and heat resistance; materials with toughness are mainly used for rough cutting, and those with abrasion resistance are used for finishing.
