custom cabinet

hi guys and girls Im sure.
I built a custom kitchen pantry for a customer, and everything was fine until I discovered that my stacked style and rail bit does not match his current cabinets.
I searched the web high and low looking for the correct style with out much success. Does anyone recognize the tooling?
or have any sugestions as to where I could find out?

Im lost at this point and the job is on hold till I find the right bit.

It's possible you won't find a matching set. Some shops fabricate their own tooling so that profile would be unique to that shop. The set I use in my shop I made myself.

The profile on the coping and sticking is the first thing I look at when someone asks me to add a cabinet on the existing kitchen. They will usually live with a different profile when you give them a price for matching someone else's millwork. I don't think I could see well enough to make a coping and sticking set anymore. When I did it was three full days labor to make a set of shaper knives. The steel for that isn't cheap either. If someone doesn't have a lot of doors it's usually cheaper to remake all the doors instead of trying to make the tooling.

The one you have in the picture is very unusual. It wouldn't surprise me if that shop made their own.
