Ive read sandpaper, burning with torch, melting on asprin. Has anyone used any of these methods with good results seeing as how the wires are so thin?

 

also, any chance a solder pot would melt the enamel coating?

solder might melt it,i usually burn the wires for a second with a bbq lighter for best results. be quick, literally only takes a second!
