I have one, but am not sure if I saved the instructions, or if I did, 
where they are.
I will look for them when I have some time this evening.

I did make one modification. I go some of the large sized casters from 
Ikea and
had a friend with a machine shop mill some adaptors for the bottom of 
the legs.
So now my Jerker desk and the storage rack are both on casters. Very
