Building a frame jig
The two most accurate things to consider when designing and building a frame jig are accuracy and rigidity. You can't have too much of either.
Your jig's design will vary depending on whether you want to build one frame or a lot of them, and if they will all be different or the same as each other.
A framework made of 2 by 2, 2 by 3, or 3 by 3 mild steel tubing is how most of them start. Some people also use a huge piece of I-beam, like ten inches, as the basis for a jig to box frame rails or build motorcycle frames.
From there you can have a perfectly flat piece of half-inch steel plate with a straight line scribed down the center, and tapped holes to locate the fixtures on it, or you can just weld the fixtures to the framework.
The height can be anywhere from two feet when you're using a plate, to three feet if you leave it open. A low design is better-suited to building frames for dragsters and door cars with roll cages.
Some people put levelling screws on the feet. Others use lag screws to bolt them to the floor. If you have to put the frame jig on wheels, you might consider using compliant, inflatable tires (or three casters) rather than four casters so nothing will get tweaked when you move it to a different surface.
I've never seen a serious frame jig that swivels. If you build the frame using fixtures that locate the frame far enough above the base, you can weld all over it, and you can always pull it out of the jig to work on small areas underneath after everything else is solid and then put it back in the jig.
You can build whatever you want, but if you want to have good results, remember accuracy and rigidity.
