Help me find this citrus juicer?

This is my favorite citrus juicer ever, bar none. Relatively small, simple mechanism (no motor to die or fancy electronics), and works *great*. I have some friends who want one but we can't find it and I don't even know what it's called! Searches for citrus juicers have brought me no joy. (We refer to it as "the sqwunger"). I bought this one at Copia many years ago before they closed, and there is no brand stamped on it.

As a point of interest, my mother has one that she inherited from my paternal grandparents. It is not enameled like this one, and the plate that catches the seeds is like lacework from 75+ years of squeezing acidic fruit!

    This looks like the same one.

    You can also find similar vintage ones on eBay.

    Just search for Wear Ever Juicer.

      This is my favorite type, too. The lever takes relatively little pressure to really squeeze out a lot of juice, something I appreciate as someone with some hand issues. I grew up using the non-enameled cast aluminum one my mother has, and was thrilled to find the orange enameled one in your photo in a Williams-Sonoma catalog five or six years ago, as I'd never seen one for sale.
