That's the one, and now it's back 'on sale' for $4.87 with free shipping. I've had 2 of these had for almost a year now, no rust, no problems, work great.

You can make some out of chopsticks or bamboo skewers like others have said (rubberband on the ends and a toothpick for a pivot - but the metal ones work so much better.

Any other sources? Amazon is being whack and not letting me use my paypal card.
