(1) The Profile Bit is has 15º sides that taper to 60º at the tip. Used to carve images and around the edges of the letter for outset text. Outset meaning the letter remains as wood with the background carved away from it.
(2) The Whiteside SC50 bit. Has a very fine point and use for very small detail. Can't be used much deeper than 3/32" because the tip is so sharply pointed it can break with too much lateral stress.
(3) The 60º bit is used for inset letters (the letter is carved out of the wood) and for larger image carving
(4) The 90º bit is used create a knobby pattern as you carve away the backgrounds around text and the inside of images. I have also used a spiral bit when I want a smooth flat background.
