You basically have the process described correctly. Wear-Ever made a lot of these aluminum "pour over" or single-drip pots. Some look pretty cool, but they are not vacuum brewers or percolators. Wear-Ever coffee makers are known for for their cylindrical shape and the "D" shaped handle. They were orignally designed to use a paper filter in conjunction with the metal filter.
In 1901 the U.S. Aluminum Company (USAC) formed "The Aluminum Cooking Utensil Company" (TACU), as its marketing subsidiary which in 1904 adopted "Wear-Ever" as its trade name. These products won a prize at the St. Louis World's Fair, and in 1912, Wear-Ever aluminum utensils became standard issue for the U.S. Marine Corps. By 1925, USAC had become ALCOA and Wear-Ever became the name for TACU. The original design patent for the Wear-Ever drip pot was issued in 1935.
