comment How can I hook up my dishwasher drain properly?
Thank you. Would you consider 1/8" over to be "a bit too large" but in the compressible range?

comment How can I hook up my dishwasher drain properly?
Thank you Bob. Are you concerned about excess stretch in the 1/2-over-5/8 connection having poor durability? Re. "you already have what you need" (always my favorite answer), were you intending that to apply to the 7/8" outflow to 1" disposal inlet as well? If so, I don't quite follow.

comment How can I hook up my dishwasher drain properly?
@Mazura, I've drained the sink into the dishwasher at least twice; both times it happened when the disposal clogged and the water level in the sink went above the maximum height of the dishwasher drain hose. An air gap would have prevented this (as would paying better attention, but everyone has such lapses from time to time).

comment How can I totally smooth a wall surface without replastering?
Note that once you have a positive lead test, in many locales you must disclose this to subsequent buyers. It may be simpler to assume the paint is leaded and take the corresponding precautions, without testing.

FWIW, using an open flame to test for the presence of unknown gases is extremely dangerous!
