Can you burn copper wire to strip it?
NO BURNING: First and foremost, we would like to reiterate that you should NEVER under any circumstances “burn” your copper wire to remove the insulation. Not only does it harm the environment from the fumes, but it will downgrade your copper at the scrap yard.
How do you strip copper wire without burning it?
There are other ways that you can make stripping your wire easier without burning it. Using heat is an option, but not the concentrated heat that burning would create. Instead, place the insulation in a black box and use the sun or a low temperature oven to heat and soften the insulation to make it more malleable.
