That gadget in #7 was not supposed to find pipe breaks, but I guess all's well that ends well.

Many newer washers don't even have lint traps anymore. Stupid idea. My washer drains into line from kitchen. There is also a rather large crack in slab just about where they join, pro'lly a shift or even collapse in cast iron under there. Its been a perpetual problem. Greasy/soap scum/ lint clog. I hard connected washer to stand pipe with anti-siphon valve. Clog problem became biennial instead of semi-annual at least.
Measure twice, cut once.
Look at the nail, not the hammer. Watch the fence, not the blade.
If you hook your thumb over your belt you won't hit it with the hammer or leave it layin on the saw table.
