I forget the name of it. It is used to make a pattern of molding or anything and transfering it to another peice by tracing against the pins. They move in and out. Usually I have them all even then press it against what ya want to copy.

Nope, contour gauge
Back in the day before electricity was discovered we made them, albeit a little less refined, of cardboard box and tooth picks.
