They have an in-built arrangement that facilitates the use of various types of detachable cutting tools that can be changed to suit the task at hand, and removed for replacement or resharpening, after wear. The cut-off material obtained is usually in the form of chips. This is the material peeled off the workpiece by the tool. It can be continuous like a ribbon or in broken chips.
