Sorta OT - Templating tool question

Hey all... Trying to find a tool I once had... It was used for taking the profile of an object. If I recall it was something like 8" to 12", and was made up of many short (3") metal pins held in a row, such that if you pressed it down on say an axle tube then pulled it away you would get an exact template of the tube...

Anyone have any idea what I am talking about?? Correct name and sources appreciated!

You want a profile gauge. Most hardware and tile/flooring store carry them.
