    I agree with Dan...there's little value to putting in a full plywood top under the stone. It's the cabinet sides/front/back that do the actual support. An extra cross piece on a wider cabinet is...

    Try to find a place that caters to contractors. The Bosch and Milwaukee 12v s are popular for installation work because of their small size and light weight.

    Barcodes/similar are what many/most states use now for electronically reading license/ID information, especially with RealID. Mag strips are considered insecure these days.
