yes a sad day i had oneThe Jerker was discontinued over 15 years ago. You wont find one in store, even if they were open.
rarely find them local, always hours to driveHe probably found a used one. But not local.
i do but most people don't care to measure or don't reply at all. i just want to prepare if i find one someday.Possibly, but in that case, why doesnt he just simply contact the seller and ask?
You watch your mouth, mister! It's not a whatever!
I actually don't remember if it did have cable management or not. I'm thinking not. My old Jerker is somewhere in Maryland being used on a DAW. They were really good for that. I do miss it sometimes.I'm just not 100% sure it's a Jerker. If so, it's a great desk. If not, it's a perfect clone.
The guy I bought it from locally sold it for $40 (I think it was) and said he had it for many years.
Not a single ding or scratch though.
Also has pop out access on the top left and right and side legs for cable management. Not sure if Jerker's have that. I'm ignorant in that subject.
Blame IKEA. They discontinued the Jerker and Galant, years ago. I've kept my Galant for 20 years because there's just nothing better, IMO.Just came to say I miss this thread and this entire sub-forum. At one point it was so largely populated and new posts appeared every single day. Where did you guys go? I'm responsible as well as I left the forum a while ago and haven't come back.
didn't they replace the Galant with basically the same idea, just under a new name? https://www.ikea.com/us/en/cat/galant-bekant-system-18960/Blame IKEA. They discontinued the Jerker and Galant, years ago. I've kept my Galant for 20 years because there's just nothing better, IMO.
It's pretty good, but not in the same class as the Galant. You could add several different sized pieces to build a truly customized Galant desk. Can't do that with the Bekant.didn't they replace the Galant with basically the same idea, just under a new name? https://www.ikea.com/us/en/cat/galant-bekant-system-18960/
fair enough. i acquired my Galant abut 10 years back and never looked back. picked up an opposite corner piece in the clearance/return bin 8.5yrs ago and have been good since then.It's pretty good, but not in the same class as the Galant.

Same color as mine (a few posts above), but yours looks to be in better shape.
I'm not sure where the desk was used before I snagged it, but it's in excellent shape. I'd say 95 out of 100. Faint ring where somebody left a glass and very small spot where it looks like the clear finish chipped away. I got super lucky.Sure does! Mine is 20 years old. Still looks pretty good and works great for an old man.
