Here are some key terms you'll want to know in selecting the right router bit for your project.

Profile: The shape of the bit's edge and the contour of the resulting cut. Common profiles include:

Straight bits make straight cuts such as dadoes and grooves.
Rabbeting bits cut a notch along the edge of a workpiece.
Flush-trim bits trim the edge of one workpiece to match the edge of another.
Chamfer bits cut a bevel on the edge of a workpiece. Round-over bits soften the edge of a workpiece. They come in different radiuses.
Beading bits cut a rounded decorative edge.
Molding bits combine edge-forming profiles into one bit.
Specialty bits – such as dovetail, stile-and-rail, and panel-raising bits – are used to do specific tasks.

Shank: The part of the bit that is secured in the router. The two most common shank sizes are 1/4" and 1/2".

Pilot bearing: On some router bits, the free-rotating metal wheel above or below the cutter that runs along the workpiece edge, acting as a guide.

HSS: High-speed steel.

Carbide: Material often used to make cutting tips on router bits. It's harder than steel and holds an edge longer.
