Welcome. You are looking for a bit that's used to cut picture frame material. There are an incredible number of shapes. Here is a sampler from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Meihejia-Arc...x=frame+maker+router+bit+sets,aps,1268&sr=8-5

There are a lot of different shapes. Remember that the cut is the reverse of the shape. It is very difficult to match old trim since so much of it was milled locally using shaper bits custom made for the purpose and mill.

Thank you, Marco, for a quick response!
I will go through the suggested catalog possibly tomorrow and let you know if i am successful.
So far, I searched high and low all internet catalogs and local stores without any luck!

Thanks again!

Sometimes you need more than one profile bit in order to achieve what you want.

Does not look like its very hard to find that profile. I always have a CMT-catalogue saved on my computer. CMT is a high quality Italian producer and they tend to have a lot of imperial shafts along with metric.

if you are going to do a lot of this profile, i cut a slice of the original and send it to woodmaster. they will make a set of blades for a molding cutter head. have used there products many times, always happy with results. have had to copy Victorian trim for house restore this way.
