That looks to be a jig made along the lines of a "Bridson jig" & using standard hardware shop angle brackets.
Am I correct?

There is a bit of info on Robbie's invaluable jig design in the General Discussion/Building Jig and Tools topic thread.
Basically, it comprises 2 lengths of angle Aluminium (or similar) angle extrusion, bolted together to give a flat top & central gap wide enough for upturned bolts to be slid along the gap, with the bolt head trapped below the gap. The bolts can then secure former stations (angle brackets) at any position along the jig length. A tape measure stuck along one side allows easy placing of the station positions from a common reference point.
