looking for metal coffee syphon

Does anyone know where to get a metal coffee syphon?

I've seen them in use in some NY Chinese restaurants like Mei Li Wah and Chatham Restaurant. The devices look like giant funnels that fit into the neck of a standard restaurant coffee pot. Don't know if they're still using them since their ownership changes, it's been a while since I've sat at the bar to watch.

From the looks of the syphons at both of those restaurants, they've been withstanding hard use for years. I've had a Bodum syphon, but it really didn't last too long with me. I'm looking for something a little more durable, and all I can find out there are glass bodies.

Thanks for your help!
