I knew one!!!!!!!!!!

Granted, I did have a nudge -- just last night I watched the Janet Leigh episode of "Columbo" (1971-1978)(Season 5, Episode 01) wherein she has to splice a broken film which is part of her alibi. Also, my viewing preference is movies of the 1930s and 1940s, so I'm sure I've seen the wooden models several times.

I guessed it was part of an improved, electrified pillory.

Oh! My father had a more modern version of that, but I didn't recognise it. The wheels? or whatever in the middle threw me off.
