Let \(T^AM\) be the bundle of \(A\)-points of a manifold \(M\) for a Weil algebra \(A\). The author investigates the problem of the classification of all natural operators \(T\to TT^*T^A\) for a Weil algebra \(A\). In fact, the author classifies all natural operators \(T_M\to TT^*T^r_kM\) for \(\dim M\geq k+2\) and gives their geometric descriptions, where \(T^r_kM\) denotes the bundle of \((k,r)\)-velocities of \(M\).
