This is an example of why a 3 by 4 90 should be used for a toilet stub. You can glue a 3 inch flange into the 4 inch stub.

Yes that would have been nice. Given my current situation should I keep progressing as is? Also could I cut my flange down a bit?

As full you make the joint the better job you have. I would cut your pipe down a bit so you get more angles with a chisel. Stuff some rags in it for chips.

Help! Now I really messed up. Not sure if I hit it with the chisel or the hammer drill but I have a dime sized hole about 1.5 inches below the finished floor! Options?

The hub of the closet flange will cover more than 1.5" of the pipe.

Also if you need to cut the pipe to below grade, buy one of these for $11 at one of the box store

The flange I had bought is 2". Do you think the half inch is enough past my error hole?

Thanks
