Stripping Litz wire - was RE: ISSTC questions

Original poster: "Lau, Gary" <gary.lau-at-hp-dot-com> 

For non-solderable enamel coated wire, I did try paint remover.  Didn't
do a thing.  Someone also suggested dipping in molten aspirin, and a
solder pot.  Nothing.

In addition to oxidizing the copper, a torch would melt the covering
that keeps the strands together and make a mess several inches down from
the termination.
