comment How do I fix a leak at a decommissioned saddle-valve?
@LorenPechtel good point on the emery cloth or smaller fitting brush. I'm a fan of flame shields too, but don't think it's needed in this situation, that looks like a joist, so well over 6" to the subfloor above.

comment I need to Mount a 55" Sony TV on a Wood paneling wall w/no studs
If you "need" to hang the TV on the wall, then build a wall to hang it on, because wood paneling without studs behind them doesn't count as a wall. Tear it down and build a proper structure you can hang the TV on.

comment I need to Mount a 55" Sony TV on a Wood paneling wall w/no studs
Typically you'd measure the door jamb without including the trim to get a good estimate of the wall thickness including the drywall/paneling, I'm wondering if the measurements could be off a bit. A cheap stud finder likely won't work on wood paneling, they are designed for drywall. Look for nails in the paneling or knock to listen of a difference in sound to see if you have 1x3's or 2x4's turned on their side. Unless it's 1x3's, I'd avoid mounting anything on it.
