In the 50s, if you wanted a DT jig, you had to make it. I made mine with hardboard from a template in a Deltagram. I remember that mine was NOT perfect and only good for materials I could persuade with a hammer! Then PC (I think) came out with a 12" HB DT jig and life was suddenly easy. Good luck and have fun.

I've never used this, but I think it's a really cool concept - A jig
that allows you to make your own dovetail jigs:

I have made dovetail jigs… for the bandsaw. They work great.
I followed Mark Duginske's method described in his first book
about bandsaws. I don't know if the later, slimmer book has
the part on dovetailing.

I made a finger joint jig once for 1" wide finger joints using
an Incra table saw fence. The sawtooth racks on the Incra
were dead-accurate so once I worked out the spacing for
3 fingers, the rest were just cut in a mathematical series. I
think with some creativity the same method could be used
to make dovetail jigs.
