Topic tags/keywords: router

I have a grandmother clock top and I’m having a heck of a time trying to find the exact match. This profile looks to be a classical ogee but it doesn’t completely match. Can anybody help me out on identifying the profile and where to get a bit from.

Thanks

Depending on the age it could be one piece hand molding plane, or a molder or maybe a set of knives for a TS molding cutter set.

Looks like you could do it in two passes.. one with an ogee and another with a roundover. Was it done on a shaper? Who knows.. but you certainly can have some custom knives ground for that exact profile to use on a shaper or moulding head cutter in your table saw.

I wont be able to do it on mt TS because of the curve. The other problem is I’ve tried contacting the maker of the clock and they said they don’t even know the type of profile used. This leads me to think I need to do it in 2 passes, and try to get it as close to a match.

You may be able to get this profile by using this type router bit.It may take some experimenting perhaps two or three separate cuts.
