So I've some ogee architrave from ~5 years ago and I want to get some more. First lot was supplied by a local joiner, long since packed up and fled the UK to somewhere warmer.

I've had a look about online but not found anything identical yet. I've seen some referred by a pattern number but can't find a list of patterns - hoping I could just look up what I have then search for it by the correct pattern number. Of course, I could just be barking up the wrong tree.

As far as I know there are no "standard mouldings" as in an exact pattern for any given type. Everyone makes their own version.
The choices are to get the closest match you can find, or to replace the whole lot, or get a set of blades ground for someone to run off a matching batch. That's expensive because of getting the blades ground and the setup cost on the machine.

As I feared. Replacing the lot isn't an option and the closest I've found so far was in MDF which I hate with a passion.

Yer, looked into that a few years back on another project. Luckily for the quantity needed, custom profiling didn't work out too extortionate.And it wasn't my wallet either.

Come across this before . Even with a "standard" ogee or any other mouldy the cutters become blunt and are often sharpened or reground and sizes thus change over time . As Dave says you could get blades ground to match but this is expensive. Another option is to get as close a match as possible , remove the exsisting in one room and replace with the new . You then use the removed old stuff to match up with skirting in other areas.

I can't understand why you don't like MDF. There's no bleed, no twisting. It's easy to sand and you get a great finish when painted.

I don't line MDF either and it's not much good if you want it stained.

Obviously I'm meant painting it. Why would anyone stain MDF :scratch:

I've made up short pieces of replacement moulding in the past by removing the waste in steps with a router, and then planing and sanding to shape. Fiddly, but OK where you need a piece to replace old moulding. Not practical with more than a short piece though.

Oh easy. It's got no character, it's top end bland, the dust gets everywhere, it can't take any significant load, screws chew through it and at the slightest sign of moisture and it swells up like popcorn. I could go on.
