Could you please help me with these sentences that I find very hard. I'm not sure of them at all.

1 By days end, you'll have a headache.

2 The phone was made to resist shock if fallen from a certain height, past that height it would break. - I banged my phone against my desk, the pouched cushioned the shock.

3 This stop is close to everything. Lets leave here.

4 They tightened his braces for 3 months.

5 I can't see when the next train is (at)/when the next train is scheduled to pull in. I can be/get home in ten minutes if I don't have to wait for the train.

6 As different/differently as we've been taught to look at each other, we're in the same struggle.

7 As of tomorrow/From tomorrow onwards, I'm off work. It's been hectic between work and home.

8 She reminds me of you in the way she acts./She reminds me of you in her freckles and...

9 Her chances of getting off at the next stop are slimmer than her not getting off.

10 If it's to scream at me that you came here, you can leave.

11 I'll only be working for her and I'll be making 100 dollars less a month. It pays better/more.
12 You won't be able to spend the amount you want to on this kind of salary.

13 Don't make my plan out to be a hoax when its not.

14 You had better have eaten by the time I get home.

15 Can you give me/have the exact time please?

Thank you

1 By (the) day's end, you'll have a headache. -- Poetic. Normally one would say "By the end of the day".

2 The phone was made to resist shock if dropped from a certain height; past/above that height it would break. -- Beware comma splices.

I banged my phone against my desk; the pouch cushioned the shock. -- Beware comma splices.

3 This stop is close to everything. Let's get out/off here.

4 They tightened his braces for three months.

5 I can't see when the next train is (at)/when the next train is scheduled to pull in.

I can be/get home in ten minutes if I don't have to wait for the train.

6 As different/differently as we've been taught to look at each other, we're in the same struggle. -- I am not completely sure whether "look at each other" makes sense in this context.

7 As of tomorrow/From tomorrow onwards, I'm off work. It's been hectic between work and home. -- OK.

8 She reminds me of you in the way she acts./She reminds me of you with her freckles and...

9 Her chances of getting off at the next stop are slimmer than her not getting off. -- Ugly. Why not just say "She's not likely to get off at the next stop"?

10 If it's to scream at me that you came here, you can leave. -- Not impossible, but unless you are deliberately trying to create a stylistic effect you'd just say "If you came here to scream at me..."

11 I'll only be working for her and I'll be making 100 dollars less a month. It pays better/more. -- Doesn't make sense.

12 You won't be able to spend the amount you want to on this kind of salary. -- OK.

13 Don't make my plan out to be a hoax when it's not. -- It's unusual for a plan to be a hoax.

14 You had better have eaten by the time I get home. -- OK.

15 Can you give me/have the exact time please?

Hello,

In number 4 I'm trying to say that "the dentist did 3 months worth of tightening as the patient had missed three apointments and so instead of tightening the braces once a month a little bit, he tighten them 3 times as much"

Can you say "tightened them 3 times as much/3 times harder/tighter."

Thank you
I really admire those who have the patience in answering your questions. Emotion: clap I wish I could do that.

"as much" seems the best option to me.
