Now I have all my 608zz bearings and they are ABEC-5 instead of ABEC-1 . . . probably doesn't make a difference, but hey, 16 bearings for $2 isn't bad. Just take your phillips and your allen wrench set with you when you go. 4 wheels on each skate = 8 bearings x 2 skates = 16 bearings. (I already had four from some extra wheels that came with a scooter = 20 bearings.)

I was given 1/4 thick glass panes from a similar throw away pile. It felt stronger than the 1/8th inch stuff. Think the thicker pane will reduce image quality?

Instead of double bearings for each piece in each joint (4 bearings per joint), I just used my roller-blade adaption.
