Topic tags/keywords: rug hooping gripper router bit

I am making a hooping frame and was wondering if anyone knows of a router bit or bits that would make this profile? Or possible a molding or something already made.
Thanks
Phil

What’s a rug hooping frame? If the length is 1 1/4” what is the hgt? I can see the profile constructed in 2 pieces but that looks like one piece. The base with a set of molder knives and the top with a bull nose bit and glued to the base.

the width of the board is 1 1/2 inches, length is 12” and height is 1/2 inch. They use these to make fancy rugs. That strip is 300ppi real pointy like needles that grabs the base of the rug being made. Here are a few more pictures.

More than likely the shape was made using a shaper/molder with specially ground blades/cutters in one pass.

The profile footprint can be made with a molder knife set but it can’t cut the slots, they’d need to be cut after the fact. Maybe stand it up and cut it with a thin kerf saw blade, 15 20°

For those who (like me) had no idea what a frame of this type was like here is a link to several good pictures. Click on them and they enlarge. Seems like there should be an easier way to do that job of holding the rug in place. larry
