You might be right mid-life-crisis. I looked back at my original (2012) order from New Clue and they listed the wheels as "50mm Black Skateboard Wheels and Bearings Set - item #280722030363". So that is why I referred to them as skateboard wheels. I guess the bottom line is, if you are looking for a set of wheels, include skateboard wheels in your search.
Very cool Where do I download the driver?
This seems to be a regional problem. HD stores carry the rings in some regions, and in others they do not. Some Home Depots will order the rings for you (you can get the sku and item numbers off the HD web site) to be delivered to that store. This can often take a long time for delivery, however, since they only send them when they are shipping other items to that particular store. Wish I had a better alternative for you.

My understanding is that the film on HF panels is only for protection against scratches and damage during shipping rather than a UV protective layer. I have also used high quality UV resistant panels for other projects. These come with a plastic film as well but it's purpose is to mark the outer (UV protected) side of the panel as well as protection during shipping. On higher quality panels, the UV protection is a part of the plastic itself, not a thin sheet over the top.
