Looking for a revolving-wheel feeder

Hi all! 40 years ago at a new home in the New Forest we inherited a feeder in the form of a wooden cross mounted on a horizontal axle. It was in the style of a bicycle wheel and about the same size; on the four extremeties were pivoted wire feeding containers

This drew attention whenever a bird landed, because its weight made the wheel rotate, was popular with a wide range of small birds, and may actually have been squirrel proof as well but we have not seen one since

Can anyone recommend a link or source where we can get something similar, or perhaps plans for construction to save the bother of experiment if I have to make one from scratch?
