Default hello searching for dovetail templates

Hi just joined today, I have several dovetail jigs in our school shop and I'm trying to find new templates for them as they have been damaged by past users. Searched the web which led me here.
We have a stanley 82913 dovetail jig and a Black and Decker 52331 type 2 dovetail jig. Would like manuals, part number and company where I can order replacement parts. I know they are old, but no need to replace the complete jig if I can get these parts.

Hi Husker:

There are a few "types" of dovetail jigs. Can you provide pictures of the two you have? It is possible that a ShopFox/Samona/General/KingCanada/Rockler/CMT/PC/BusyBeeCraftex/ (same jig, multiple labels) template might fit. They're the most common and have a variety of template sizes. One of the better manuals is the BusyBee.com for the Craftex. However, I would recommend that you download a variety of manuals and combine them to create your own.

Your students might also benefit from making their own guides to cut them by hand. Tommy Mac's website might be able to help.

Hi

It will be real hard to find parts for the OLD jigs,you have the templates just make some new ones by using a trim bit and some plastic, I suggest you make a master template with some 1/2" MDF and than use it to make the copies..

I recall making one for my brother when he wiped out his in a error with the router. it's a very easy job ,just takes time..

the stanley jig is obsolete 2x over, once from stanley, then from bosch.

Haven't found much on the BD jig either.

your probabally right, would be a good assignment for the student who made the mistake, and needs it. I do have a CNC machine and may attempt to duplicate it with that.
