Is this a 5x8 Weiler?

I purchased this little press, but am unsure of its make. There are no cast marks or SN to be found; there is a sticky place on the right side that looks like it once held an ID plate. I think this may be a Weiler based on photos I’ve seen, but I’m not sure. The chase is 5.5”x8”. Any thoughts?

Didn’t the Japanese make a little press like that at one time? I suspect the sticky place, if it was from a label, would indicate a pretty late date for it (1950s-60s), and it is my impression that Weiler put his name cast in relief on almost all his products.
