You can see a better image of the leg below. It's just attached to the wall as a display leg. I believe they can pull it up when they expect bunch of people to be outside the control room like launch day, etc.

Looks like they're using it to make the cooling channels in Raptor nozzles, going by the picture in the press release.

From that article:

"Beaumont has built equipment as small as a phone booth..."

I'll bet that there are readers here who have never seen a phone booth.

But everyone has seen a Blue Tardis, which is based on a slightly oversize phone booth.  ;)
