They do still sell the Jerker, but it's apparently been significantly 
redesigned at least once. I have two and they're only vaguely like 
Bill's photos. The top shelf on mine are much shallower and do not have 
angle brackets to support them; the main surface is shaped differently; 
and there are no pull-out anythings.

I was about to write and say I didn't see what was so complex that you 
couldn't reassemble them without instructions. After looking at the 
photos, though, I can see how there might be one or two small 

Mine look like this (ca. Dec 2001... warning, dated tech!)
