Except when it's called a 'pulley'.

Really, for the whole apparatus including the slats& the rope, as
well as the pulley in the narrow sense? (I didn't know that.)

As a child, I found it confusing, but yes - the whole contraption is
'the pulley'.

We did have one (in Aberdeen) when I was very young. Removed when the
kitchen was modernised. And I can't for the life of me remember what
mother called it. I'll ask my older brother.
