What router bit makes this design?

Trying to make more chair rail for my father. I can't seem to find a bit that will match this... any help?

If you are trying to match that exactly probably this bit will give you enough versatility to do it with multiple cuts. https://www.toolstoday.com/p-6208-po...qb4aAqYi8P8HAQ

That's not a profile of a core box bit, or any router bit i've seen, looks more like it was made with the moulding head that Sears used to have, or maybe still has.

Sorry but it is a core box. I'm sure he wants to duplicate it for a few feet, not a 1000... Simple duplication if you have the core box...It's just a reverse....

He will have to manipulate the pattern...

Well that's your opinion, and your entitled to it, but it will take a lot of manipulation to duplicate it with the core box.

It could be one of these

It is possibly one of these OR a custom ground variation:


This company makes a great variety of molding head cutters:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

There's more than a core box. I use to make a lot of moldings in the early 80's while working in the mill shop.. This one isn't difficult... Just take a bit of thinking....

It looks like it could be done by 2 passes of this bit: https://www.amazon.com/Ivy-Classic-P...ds=beading+bit.

So what do you think? Two passes with a 1/8 inch core box and them try to round over the edges ?

Should be able to round the corners with the proper radius round over bit

Is the moulding flat with the two grooves cut into it? It is kind of hard to tell it kind of looks like the wood slants into the grooves

I looked though all the catalogs for moulding cutters from the fellas I use and couldn't find anything so it must have been a custom grind on the original knives. It is like they have every profile except yours LOL

I would say with a router bit this is probably as close as you are going to get. But using a corbox and then using a rabbeting plane and then some sandpaper to make the middle a bead would work too.

I'm betting it is some kind of a molder cutter or a tablesaw molder head (like the Sears cutter or other brands)

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com

Smallest core box i've ever seen was 1/4 inch.

To give identical dimensions you'll need an end view(photo) with specific dimensions

You are right a core box bit is for fluting, not bead work.

A person could take the three bead knife out of this set and grind the outer two off and use it to make the chair rail if the size is right.

It amazes me how we can have all these posts about something we know almost nothing about, first question should be the dimensions of the profile of the original molding so we have something concrete to go on.
